The Supreme Court decision that prayers to open local government meetings are constitutional, even if they stress Christianity, is sound and could lead to a more peaceful nation, political strategist Hank Sheinkopf says.

"Let people pray. If more people prayed, maybe they'd shoot less people. Maybe they'd put their daily work to better use. Maybe there'd be less hostility. Maybe people would have more order, and maybe there would be some control in their behavior," Sheinkopf told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"The problem we have is that whether you're a Republican or Democrat, one thing is clear: we're losing the sense of shame in this country, and maybe prayer would get people to pay attention," he said Monday.

Sheinkopf, president of Sheinkopf Communications and a Newsmax contributor, said the U.S. is a Christian nation "which effectively by law says anybody can do what they want so long as they don't create public disruptions."

He said past decisions to inhibit prayer haven't worked.

"If the world were better since the ban on prayer in school, I would want to know how someone proves that," he said.

"Are children better-behaved? Are we having better relationships with each other? Is the sense of community increasing in value? Are people meeting in more community settings to improve their settings? Are these things happening? Probably not."
