Stop the War on Prayer

Justus Baird was a signatory to the Stop the War on Prayer "Open Letter to the Faithful", which reads in part:[1]

"We the undersigned call on believers of all faiths to join us in denouncing the dangerous 'War on Prayer' being waged in America. We believe it is time to shine light on the hypocrisy of politicians and pundits who expound on the freedom of religion for their chosen sects while seeking to tell our Muslim brothers and sisters where they can and cannot worship. Using a political podium to bully a religious community threatens one of our most fundamental freedoms."
