On November 4, 2004 The State (S.C.) reported, "the town of Great Falls has lost its appeal of a circuit court ruling ordering it not to invoke the name of Jesus Christ during prayers before its Town Council meetings. That ruling came as a result of a lawsuit filed in 2001 by Great Falls resident Darla Kaye Wynne, who practices the earth religion Wicca. Wynne said the prayers excluded non-Christians like her and were unconstitutional. In July, a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia agreed."
