Akron City Council abandons Lord's Prayer

Akron responds to litigation threat.

What always surprises me about such articles is that they describe the practice as a "long-standing tradition" or the like. But surely if it's that long-standing it was around when the Supreme Court rulings came down. I'd be pretty confident in asserting that these rulings were publicized, so they kept up the prayer despite knowing it was unconstitutional... that's the only conclusion that I can come to. Why? These rulings were decades ago. Why are we still trying to stamp out these "long-standing traditions"?? And why does it take a threat of a lawsuit to make them comply with the law?
