The upstate New York residents who challenged their town board's prayer practice before the nation's highest court say their disappointment in losing is softened by the dialogue the case has inspired.
    
A day after the U.S. Supreme Court's narrow decision upholding Christian prayers at the start of Greece Town Board meetings, Linda Stephens and Susan Galloway say they'll continue to push the board to be more inclusive as it schedules people to deliver the prayers.
    
Both say they are happy to see the debate their case has generated around the country, where it's been a top news story and generated thousands of online comments.
    
The Freedom from Religion Foundation, meanwhile, has announced a contest to recognize the best secular "invocations" delivered at government meetings.
