Human right to prayers

Share this article

I WAS delighted to learn that prayers are said before the meetings of Horsham District Council. I hope that this will continue. Surely to be allowed to pray is a basic human right equal to the right not to pray.

It would seem that provision is already made for those who do not wish to pray. So why change?

If we exclude faith from public life we surely discard the foundation upon which all our civil liberties are based.
