Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan said Wednesday he supported states having the right to allow prayer in schools, CBN News reports. "That's a constitutional issue of the states, moral responsibility of parents, education," Ryan said. Last year, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney also said he supported prayer in schools. "I'm not looking for teachers to have prayer every day in the classroom, but I do think at special ceremonies -- graduation, football games and the like -- that calling on our Creator is a good idea," Romney told CNN.
