Groups Call on Beshear to Cancel Prayer Breakfast

Americans United for the Separation of Church and State has joined in a call for Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear to cancel a prayer breakfast next week.  The group sent a letter to the governor Monday, contending the event is an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.  Beshear says the March 6th prayer breakfast is a long-held tradition that he won’t cancel.  The Freedom from Religion Foundation had made a similar request last week on the same grounds.
