Voters in Missouri have overwhelmingly approved a “right to pray” amendment to the state’s constitution, despite concerns about the measure’s necessity and legality. Amendment 2 received nearly 80 percent of the vote.
The language on the August 7 ballot stressed the rights of citizens to express their religious beliefs and the rights of children to pray and acknowledge God in schools.
