JONES APPLAUDS COURT DECISION ON PRAYER IN CONGRESS

Oct 12, 2017 Issues: Values

WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) praised the U.S. District Court’s decision in Barker v. Conroy, which upheld Congress’ right to open each legislative day with prayer to God, and released the following statement:

“I am very happy to see the district court in our nation’s capital reaffirm the important role of prayer in our legislative branch,” said Congressman Jones. “Our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian values.  For 243 years, our Congress has opened its day with prayer, and I will fight to make sure that never changes.”

Congressman Jones is a long time member of the House Values Action Team and has consistently supported and defended religious freedom.
