Missouri bishops urge voters to approve proposed public prayer amendment

The proposed amendment will appear on Missouri's Aug. 7 statewide ballot. It asserts the right in Missouri to pray in public places as long as doing so does not disturb the peace. It also says that students may express their religious beliefs and cannot be compelled to participate in assignments that violate those beliefs.
