The U.S. Supreme Court placed a small town in upstate New York on the right side of the law on Monday, defending the town's practice of opening public meetings with a group Christian prayer, as long as officials make efforts at inclusion. We'll discuss the ruling and the place of prayer in public spaces.

Guests:

Dave Niose, legal director of the American Humanist Association and author of "Nonbeliever Nation: The Rise of Secular Americans"

Anthony Caso, associate professor at Chapman University School of Law and co-author of an amicus brief in support of the petitioner in Greece v. Gallower

Kimberly Winston, writer for Religion News Service
