Praying to Jesus on the House Floor

In an anonymous statement to Roll Call, a Congressional staff member discussed their frustration with hearing explicitly Christian prayers to open legislative sessions. 

“It bothers me, not being a Christian, to hear that Jesus is our savior or we should be thankful to be here because of Jesus,” the staffer, who asked to remain anonymous, recently told CQ Roll Call. “It bothers me more as an American.”

We agree. Prayers have no place in legislating. They only serve to divide us. It's time for our government to focus on governing, and not on praying.
