The Pueblo City Council will no longer pray at public meetings after the Freedom From Religion Foundation filed a complaint, according to The Associated Press.
In a letter to Pueblo council President Christopher Kaufman, the Wisconsin-based foundation said the practice violates the Constitution.
Annie Laurie Gaylor, foundation co-president, said told The Gazette on Wednesday that she didn’t know whether a similar complaint had ever been filed with the city of Colorado Springs, which has a chapter, or El Paso County.
“It may be that some of our members in Colorado Springs just felt like they were never going to (succeed.) You know, they were resigned due to the fact that they were probably not going to get this stopped because of the domination of the area by Focus on the Family, etcetera. There has been kind of a concerted effort to attract Evangelicals to the city. It’s known for that,” she said.
