WASHINGTON, USA, June 11, 2001: In a 6-3 decision the Supreme Court ruled for a Christian youth group and lowered the figurative wall of separation between church and state. The justices said a New York public school district must let the Good News Club hold after-school meetings for grade-school children to pray and study the Bible. The majority found that excluding the club was an unconstitutional discrimination based on the club's views. Letting the meeting take place would not be an unconstitutional government endorsement of religion, the court ruled.
