Landslide Vote for Right to Pray in Missouri

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Missouri voters have approved a state constitutional amendment that guarantees the right to pray in a public place.

The Prayer Amendment passed by a landslide with 82.8% of voters in support. We are so encouraged by the high voter turnout, with 942,000 people showing up on the polls in Missouri! With all but two precincts statewide counted, 779,628 voted yes on the measure and 162,404 voted no, roughly a 5-1 margin.

The measure — Amendment 2 — says Missourians’ right to express religious beliefs cannot be infringed. It protects voluntary prayer in schools and requires public schools to display a copy of the Bill of Rights.

This is a significant victory and an impressive legislative solution to the bullying tactics of anti-God groups who are seeking to remove God and prayer from America. Legislative Prayer Caucuses now have a superb case for implementing similar legislation.
