“A Republican legislator has been holding weekly Bible study sessions for lawmakers in his state Capitol office for the past three years, raising questions again about where the line between church and state lies in the building.
Administrative rules require state employees to use state buildings only for official work. Critics say the meetings are inappropriate, even though praying before legislative session days and religious displays in the Capitol rotunda have been upheld as legal.”
WFA president Julaine Appling responds, “Freedom From Religion Foundation is once again doing what it does best—being the neighborhood bully. We have nothing but the highest praise and regard for Representative Tittl and the Bible Study. He’s totally within his legal rights to do this, as are those who attend. Frankly, I can’t think of anything better for our state legislature than prayer & Bible study!”
