DES MOINES, Iowa —Many of Iowa's House lawmakers opted to skip a prayer offered by a member of the Wiccan faith. The prayer Thursday by Deborah Maynard, a Wiccan from Cedar Rapids, was a break from tradition. Cedar Rapids Democratic Rep. Liz Bennett, who invited Maynard, says she thinks it was the first time a Wiccan gave the invocation.
Quote of the moment:
It was such a lovely day I thought it a pity to get up.
