Whenever you see pro-religious laws on a ballot, you should always consider voting "No" by default.
Government should stay out of the church and the church should stay out of government.
Our police, firefighters, and schools are secular for a reason. They have a job to do that have to do with the facts on the ground. Police don't arrest criminals with faith. Firefighters don't put out fires with prayer. Children don't learn math and science by skipping class.
VOTE NO on Amendment 2! As a former school board member, I can tell you unequivocally that children already have the right to pray at school and bring their bibles. That right is not under threat and is a misleading law preying on the fears of an unsuspecting public.
The Missouri Constitution says that intelligence and knowledge are essential to the rights and freedoms of our people. Letting kids skip class because it might challenge their faith is not knowledge and intelligence...it is willful ignorance and religious indoctrination.
We are not Saudi Arabia. We are America!
