Bachmann Defends the National Day of Prayer

Apr 21, 2010
Today, U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann (MN-06) along with Members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus and faith leaders held a bipartisan press conference responding to a federal judge's ruling that a federal law designating a National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Barbara B. Crabb issued the decision last week in a case filed by the Freedom From Religion Foundation. 

"It was never the intent of the Founding Fathers for faith, religion, and God to be stricken from public life as liberals are working so hard to do today," Bachmann stated. "This court decision could not be more misguided and has simply no constitutional backing, as our founding document secured for all of us the right to pray. The American people would want it no other way."
