The Founding Fathers were men of faith, who were guided by their deep religious convictions. Our Federal and State governments have hundreds of years of precedence of saying prayers at the beginning of meetings and sessions. After the US Supreme Court recently ruled that legislative bodies such as the Board of Selectmen can begin their meetings with prayer, there was no hesitation on the part of Selectmen Marrone to bring this issue forward for a vote.
