‘Prayer Caucus’ forms in Legislature

By Charles Ashby

A Colorado chapter of the Congressional Prayer Caucus has formed in the Colorado Legislature.

Though the initial group of state lawmakers in it include two Democrats, 25 other charter members are Republicans, including Rep. Ray Scott, R-Grand Junction.

The group says it was formed "to preserve our nation's Judeo-Christian heritage and protect our individual religious liberty."

It's main goals:

  1. Ensure that Christian beliefs have unfettered access in the marketplace of ideas.
  2. Reverse the dismantling of our nation’s Judeo-Christian foundation.
  3. Sustain and equip leaders to uphold Judeo-Christian principles in government.
  4. Create the architecture within federal and state governments for the protection of religious and individual freedom.
  5. Communicate the constitutional truths that establish America’s freedom.
  6. Protect public expression of prayer and faith in God.

The members include:

  • Senator Scott Renfroe, Senate Minority Whip (R) – Co-Chair
  • Representative John Soper (D) – Co-Chair
  • Senator Mike Kopp, Senate Minority Leader (R)
  • Senator Greg Brophy (R)
