Separation of Church and State? Rep.Louie Gohmert on History of Prayer in the U.S. Capitol
Where I whole heartedly agree with Congressman Gohmert here, it is important to understand that Madison did in fact disagree with House chaplains being paid by the government, and I agree. If the government is to pay the chaplains salaries, it isn't long before they dictate what the chaplains can say or not say. This can be a problem. However, he did not disagree with Chaplains ministering inside the Capitol or church services on the grounds thereof. -W.E.
