A recent survey showed that people favor prayer at public meetings — as long as it’s a generic prayer that’s not specifically Christian.
According to the Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind survey, most registered voters (73 percent) said “prayer at public meetings is fine as long as the public officials are not favoring some beliefs over others.”
And 23 percent said “public meetings shouldn’t have any prayers at all because prayers by definition suggest one belief or another.”
The Religion News Service reported full findings, and we want you to chime on.
