Pray that Missouri's 'right to pray' amendment is killed
The Kansas City Star
As they should be, the lawsuits are already flying over Missouri voters’ approval Tuesday of the ridiculous “right to pray” Amendment No. 2.
This amendment is so full of problems that it’s likely a court-ordered goner in a few years, if not a few months.
In fact, the court cases could keep it from ever taking effect.
That would be good.
Amendment 2 is a waste of time, a piece of ultra-conservative fluff aimed at appealing to Missouri voters who don’t know better.
The Missouri and U.S. constitutions already protect prayer in schools, which is what Amendment 2 was sold as doing.
In reality, though, it was stuffed with other inane topics, such as giving students the right not to participate in school activities that might offend their religious beliefs.
The sooner Amendment 2 is killed, the better.
