Voters to Local Calif. City Council: Keep Praying

Ad Feedback

Voters in Lancaster, Calif., have told their city council to keep on praying.

A ballot measure allowing the council to open meetings with prayer passed by a 3 to 1 margin.

Mayor Lex Parris urged citizens to get out and vote for the measure, even if they weren't voting for him. He won re-election with 57 percent of the vote.

Parris says ministers of all faiths are invited to pray before the meetings.

Critics complain that too many of the ministers are Christians who pray in the name of Jesus Christ.

The American Civil Liberties Union says it might sue the city if the prayers don't become more diverse.
