Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to ensure:Now two Missouri women are challenging that ballot language. Last Thursday, the Reverend Madeline Coburn, a Methodist minister who works with prisoners, and Brenda Bredemeier, an associate professor at University of Missouri - St. Louis, sued the state in an attempt to change what voters will see at the polls.
- That the rights of Missouri citizens to express their religious beliefs shall not be infringed;
- That school children have the right to pray and acknowledge God voluntarily in their schools, and;
- That all public schools shall display the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution.
Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to ensure:
- Repeal the the state constitutional right of prisoners to religious freedom and liberty of conscience and belief, and;
- Create a right for any student, in public or private schools, to refuse to participate in assignments or classes that violate the student's religious beliefs?
