This week, U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) will introduce the “National Prayer in School Act.” This legislation, if passed, will allow students and staff to pray in school without fear of repercussion if they choose to engage. Rep. Gaetz announced his intention to introduce the legislation at Turning Point Action’s 2023 Action Conference.
In June 2022, the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of religious freedom and sided with a football coach who was fired by his school district for embracing his First Amendment right before games. Rep. Gaetz’s legislation will enforce the Supreme Court’s ruling to allow every person the ability to engage in prayer in school.
“God’s reach does not stop at the schoolhouse gates. Our country’s education policy forbids students and faculty from praying while endlessly promoting degenerate LGBT and anti-White propaganda.
My legislation unlocks religious freedom once again so that in every classroom in America, there will be time for students to pray if they choose,” Congressman Gaetz said.
