Announcing that "God's reach does not stop at the schoolhouse gates," U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., has confirmed plans to introduce his "National Prayer in School Act."
The bill, little more than one paragraph, confirms that anyone who limits another person's "ability to engage in prayer" shall be liable "in an action at law."
The Daily Caller reports it first obtained a copy of the legislation, and Gaetz said he would introduce the proposal on Friday.
The report said he explained it would allow students and staff to pray in school without fear of negative consequences.
The report said his plan specifically would enforce the Supreme Court’s June 2022 ruling in favor of religious freedom.
The court sided with a football coach, Joe Kennedy, who was fired by his school district in Washington state for using his First Amendment right to pray after games. Kennedy has been restored to his coaching position now, and plans to be on the field, praying, after games this fall.
"Our country’s education policy forbids students and faculty from praying while endlessly promoting degenerate LGBT and anti-White propaganda," Gaetz told the Caller about his plan.
He said his legislation would restore religious freedom to American classrooms.
