Indiana Bill Would Require the Lord’s Prayer in Schools

Indiana Bill Would Require the Lord’s Prayer in Schools January 8, 2013

A Republican legislator in Indiana who last year tried to get creationism into science classrooms now has submitted a bill to allow public schools in that state to recite the Lord’s prayer before school every day. The bill, introduced on the first day of the legislative session, says:

In order that each student recognize the importance of spiritual development in establishing character and becoming a good citizen, the governing body of a school corporation or the equivalent authority of a charter school may require the recitation of the Lord’s Prayer at the beginning of each school day. The prayer may be recited by a teacher, a student, or the class of students.

That would last about a millisecond after a federal lawsuit was filed.
