Inhofe backs prayer measure “I believe our founding fathers would be dismayed by our current culture’s attempt to dictate where the freedom of religion can and cannot be expressed,” said Inhofe. “Our fathers wrote the First Amendment not to protect government from religion, but quite the opposite. I applaud Sen. Rubio for filing this amicus brief that fights to preserve our nation’s heritage of welcoming those of any religion to practice openly, freely and peacefully.”
