Rev. Chad Combs Testifies Against Constitutional Amendment for School Prayer

Rev. Chad P. Combs of the United Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia testifies before the House Judiciary Committee in opposition to an amendment to the Constitution that would authorize school prayers.

This amendment has been proposed in response to the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision that struck down mandatory school prayers.

Rev. Combs explains that as Christians understand what's going on, they are less supportive of such an amendment:

"Probably 90% of my congregation would have supported such an amendment after the Supreme Court's rulings against prayers and Bible reading.

But now, after a deeper study of the history and theology involved, I'd say 80% of them are opposed."
