MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Advocates for the separation of church and state are rallying in support of a federal judge's ruling that found the National Day of Prayer unconstitutional.
Outside the Wisconsin Capitol, about 50 members and supporters of the Freedom From Religion Foundation said they hoped Thursday would mark the final National Day of Prayer.
They cheered U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb, who ruled last month the law that created the prayer day was an unconstitutional call to religious action. Crabb put enforcement of her ruling on hold while the Obama administration appeals and prayer events went on as scheduled across the nation Thursday.
Activists held signs that read, "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off" during the peaceful protest.
