The battle over a National Day of Prayer continues in Washington.
Congressman Louie Gohmert, who represents parts of East Texas, held a news conference in response to a federal judges ruling last week, that a national day of prayer is unconstitutional.
The group Freedom from Religion Foundation had challenged the constitutionality of the day.
U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb decided the day was illegal.
Mr. Gohmert said Judge Crabb is ignorant of America's Christian heritage. He was joined by several other high profile conservatives, including Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann.
