The Supreme Court announced Monday that it will decide whether a Rhode Island high school may include a prayer in its graduation ceremony--a signal that it may be ready to permit a broader role for religion in schools and in public life. For at least two decades, the high court has been badly split on church and state issues, leading to a series of confused rulings on Christmas displays at city halls, prayers during public ceremonies and state aid to parochial schools.

The sudden shift by Jason Scott, 24, has raised the possibility that the Cult Awareness Network will be able to emerge from bankruptcy and resume its work.
