ST. LOUIS Mo. (KMOX) — The Franklin county commission recently received a lawsuit from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in effort to get the commission leaders to stop praying before the weekly meetings.

Commission officials have responded by saying the prayers will not stop. And have even started asking member of the community to host the prayers.

Presiding commissioner John Griesheimer said “(The prayers) will be respective of all faiths and religion; Jewish, Muslim, whatever.”

Griesheimer says he doesn’t think this will satisfy the ACLU, but he says, it’s what the commission’s legal counsel says would be a good compromise.
