Prayer is inexpedient: House committee suffers a close one

A legislative committee is apparently scared of the Lord’s Prayer. The House Education Committee doesn’t want anything to do with the prayer that Jesus taught.
Even though the prayer’s mandatory recitation in public school classrooms was spiked by the U.S. Supreme Court a half-century ago, a state law encouraging its recital remains on the books.
The prayer is not said in public schools but the very fact that it is referenced in the law apparently bugs the hell out of a legislator, whose bill would remove the law.
