Christian Lawmaker Seeks Do-Over After Atheist Prayer

"An atheist lawmaker's decision to give the daily prayer at the Arizona House of Representatives triggered a do-over from a Christian lawmaker who said the previous day's prayer didn't pass muster," the AP reports.

State Rep. Steve Smith (R) said the prayer offered by Rep. Juan Mendez (D-AZ) "wasn't prayer at all. So he asked other members to join him in a second daily prayer in 'repentance.'"
