Jon Husted on Principles & Values
Public prayer in Legislature is free speech
As Speaker of the House, Jon Husted fought to preserve opening prayer before House session. Husted protected guest pastor prayer, and in a memo to the House Clerk stated that as "the leader of this esteemed chamber,
I will not allow our prayers to be censored."
After questions about the policy arose, Husted stood strong on the principles of free speech and religious tolerance by protecting the important tradition of reflection and guidance through prayer.
