• Missouri Voters Finally Continue to Have "Right to Pray" in Public

    Finally! After years and years of being allowed to pray at home, at work, at school, in the public square on television, the good God-fearing people of Missouri went to the polls and finally gave themselves the right to continue expressing their religious faith to their heart's content

    The so-called "right to pray" amendment to the Missouri Constitution passed by the kind of margin rarely seen in election referendums…

    "Missourians have affirmed the right to pray in public places and repudiated religious intolerance," said Mike Hoey, executive director of the Missouri Catholic Conference, as early returns showed the measure winning by a sevenfold advantage…

    Opponents of the amendment have said Amendment 2's religious protections are already guaranteed by the state Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution.

    It must feel so nice — after all of these years of being encouraged by society to make their religious faith loudly public and grandstandingly large — to let down your hair and behave just like you did yesterday and the day before.
