Missouri votes to approve ‘right to pray’ amendment comment (0)

August 16, 2012


COLUMBIA, Mo. — Voters in Missouri overwhelmingly approved a “right to pray” amendment to the state’s constitution Aug. 7, despite concerns about the measure’s necessity and legality.

Amendment 2, which supporters said would protect the freedom of religious expression in public schools and other public spaces, received nearly 80 percent of the vote. 

The language on the ballot stressed the rights of citizens to express their religious beliefs and the rights of children to pray and acknowledge God in schools.
