(USA)–Next, in the United States, a Ten Commandments monument at the center of a bitter dispute has been removed from public view in Alabama’s state judicial building. Opponents to the monument claim violation of separation of church and state. Supporters counter with First Amendment freedoms. Christians wonder what impact this would have on public gatherings. Bible Pathway Ministries’ Barbara Bivens. “I don’t foresee a whole lot of problem in that, and the thing is, if they allow any kind of gathering on the site, they cannot refuse to allow the Bible Reading Marathon.” Bivens is referencing an annual event on the Capitol steps. It’s the Bible Reading Marathon, launched by Bible Pathway to mark the National Day of Prayer. Bivens, again: “I don’t think that that’s going to be a problem, if it is, then we will approach it and we will pray for it with the people who are praying there. God does answer prayers, sometimes not in the way we think.”
