A Wisconsin state representative has been told by the Freedom From Religion Foundation to move his prayer meetings out of the state Capitol. Rep. Paul Tittl has been holding weekly Bible study sessions in his state Capitol office for the past three years. But FFRF co-founder Annie Laurie Gaylor wants Tittl to stop the Bible sessions, and even taunts him for praying.
“Our message to pious politicians is: Get off your knees and get to work. The answers will not come from above. Nothing fails like prayer,” Gaylor wrote in a letter. The demand from the FFRF comes despite the fact that praying before legislative session days and religious displays in the Wisconsin Capitol rotunda have been upheld as legal. CONTINUE
