Iowa Republican: End Of School Prayer Led To ‘Assault, Rape, Murder’
[su_right_ad]Tamara Scott is part of the Republican National Committee and also Concerned Women for America.
“When the prayer came out in the ‘70s, and that’s one of the things that I prayed for last week in Louisiana with 6,000 people, repentance, because we as a church should never have let that happen, we should never have allowed prayer to be taken out of our schools,” she said.
She cited the claims of Christian-nation activist David Barton, who links the end of state-sponsored school prayer to all manner of social ills. “Since we’ve done that, David Barton has done studies and research that in your schools, the crimes used to be gum, tardiness and talking. Now it is assault, rape, murder. We’re dealing with much more difficult issues,” she said.
(In reality, the rates of violent crime and sexual assault have plummeted in the last two decades.)
