← Dangerous Amendment 2 in Missouri

Among other things, this amendment extends a right to people that is already granted them by the U.S. federal Constitution. It allows for public, elected officials to conduct prayer ceremonies before every meeting of the General Assembly.

Ah well! They can all face Mecca while the women sit at the back wearing burkas! - Bottoms up !!

It also allows parents to make judgement calls as to whether or not certain subjects that contradict their religious faith should be taught to their children. This measure will serve to stymie intellectual growth and is a travesty of the concept of education. It severely blurs the line between church and state and brings god right into the classroom.

Educational integrity V political expediency & a few votes from religious ignoramuses. - No contest in some political circles it seems!

I suppose the UK and Europe, will still be exporting scientists to the US for quite some time!
