In the original letter to Huebsch, Foundation co-presidents Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor had observed: "Many of these 'prayers' are nothing less than sermons meant to proselytize and advance the Christian faith to the Wisconsin general public.""Fifteen of these sixteen formal opening prayers by legislators from May 16, 2007 to May 28, 2008 were explicitly Christian.
