Known as the "Right to Pray" bill, Amendment 2 also protects voluntary prayer in public schools and requires that the schools display a copy of the Bill of Rights.
Kerry Messer, president of the Missouri Family Network, told the Kansas City Star, "The public feels like the Supreme Court took [the religious liberty to pray] away from them over 50 years ago with a ruling against mandatory school prayer."
