Bryant voices support for school prayer

Gov. Phil Bryant spoke out in favor of prayer in public schools Tuesday during an appearance at American Legion Boys State in Hattiesburg.

Bryant told more than 300 rising seniors at the University of Southern Mississippi that he fondly remembered praying when he was a school child.

“I don’t think it hurt us at all,” he said. “I think it built our character, and I think it is what we should continue to do.”
