ACLU still opposing MO prayer amendment after lawsuit

Thursday, 07 March 2013 06:35 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The American Civil Liberties Union says it will keep fighting against Missouri's new constitutional amendment on prayer after a federal judge dismissed its initial lawsuit.

The ACLU sued Missouri's Department of Corrections on behalf of two inmates after voters approved the amendment in August. It argued the measure's ballot summary did not explain how the amendment would impact prisoners. A provision in the amendment says the religious rights of inmates are limited to federal law, which provides fewer protections than Missouri law.

U.S. Judge Howard Sachs dismissed the case in February. An ACLU official says the group hasn't decided whether to appeal this case or wait for another lawsuit.

The amendment is more widely known for protecting public prayer and letting students avoid assignments that violate their religious beliefs.
