World War II Memorial Prayer Act
On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass
06/23/2014
House Roll Call No. 339
113rd Congress, 2nd Session

Passed: 370-12 (see complete tally)

On June 23, 2014, the House, by a vote of 370-12, passed the World War II Memorial Prayer Act (S. 1044). The ACLU urged representatives to vote against S. 1044 because, by placing a sectarian prayer on the World War II Memorial, the bill sends a government-endorsed message of exclusion to those with different religious beliefs or none at all.  In addition, the bill sets a dangerous precedent for Congress to reconsider carefully designed national memorials to add new, controversial elements years after their dedication.
