Public Prayers for Congress

December 1923
America;12/22/1923, Vol. 30 Issue 10, p234
The author reflects on the so-called fool legislation that floods the U.S. Congress at its opening in 1923. According to the author, certain absurd measures are sponsored in Congress since the representative is pushed by a constituent. Other bills are pernicious such that these curtail the guarantees contained in the First Amendment, the author adds. The author notes that to pray that Congress may be aided by the Spirit of light and of counsel in its deliberations is an act of patriotism.
