    The Colorado Supreme Court has thrown out a lawsuit by a professing atheist organization that challenged proclamations in recognition of the National Day of Prayer, overturning a lower court ruling that declared such proclamations unconstitutional.

    As previously reported, in 2008, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sued then-Governor Bill Ritter for “showing governmental preference for religion” by issuing the Day of Prayer designation, asserting that in doing so, Ritter violated the Religious Freedom Clause of the Colorado Constitution.

    In 2010, a district court ruled against FFRF, stating that it found no constitutional infringement.
