There will be a prayer before Boyle County Fiscal Court meetings after all.

The Danville Advocate-Messenger says the court has decided to have a non-denominational prayer before its meetings.

On January 8th ABC 36 reported that the prayer had been replaced by a moment of silence because someone felt a prayer was 'pushing' religion on people.

One Magistrate continued to pray before the meetings.

The newspaper says the man who originally objected to the prayer is Ricky Smith.

The paper says he is not satisfied with a non-denominational prayer, because it's still religious in nature.

He says he plans legal action.
