Rev. Scott Jones, pastor of the Cathedral of Hope, was invited to give the opening prayer at the legislative session yesterday by State Representative Al McAffrey. In his opening remarks, Rev. Jones acknowledge his church, his family, and his partner and fiance Michael.
When Rep. McAffrey asked the prayer be recorded in the House journal for the day, several representatives immediately objected and the action was put to a vote.
