POINT PLEASANT - The American Civil Liberties Union is suing Point Pleasant Beach, claiming a violation of church and state.

The lawsuit was prompted by a Jewish resident, who says her civil rights are being violated every time the municipal clerk recites a Christian prayer at the beginning of borough council meetings.

The "Lord's Prayer" is recited at the beginning of every Borough Council meeting in Point Pleasant Beach and the ACLU claims the borough clerk also does the sign of the cross.

Some people News 12 New Jersey spoke with say they have no problem with the prayer, but others say that they think it should be eliminated.

The borough attorney says he'll advise officials to change the wording at next week's meeting.
