If the Missouri House and Gov. Jay Nixon agree, later this year it will be a crime to “disrupt a house of worship.”

Senate President Pro Tem Rob Mayer, R-Dexter, told colleagues a person could be charged with the crime if he or she “knowingly disturbs a building used for religious purposes by the use of profanity, by rude or indecent behavior or by making some unreasonable noises.”

He said the crime also could be charged if a person “intentionally or attempts to injure, intimidate, or interfere with any person lawfully exercising their right of religious freedom, or (are) seeking access to a house of worship, if they use force, threat or physical obstruction.”

The crime would be punishable by as long as six months in jail and a $500 fine, with repeat offenders facing increasingly harsher penalties.

Senate President Pro Tem Rob Mayer said he sponsored the legislation because there have been isolated incidents around the country of people disturbing worship services, though he did not cite any particular examples.

"It's something that you wouldn't think you'd have to come forth with," said Mayer, R-Dexter. "But we're getting some protests at mosques and synagogues and churches and even outside the church buildings on the actual church property."

Several other states already have similar laws, according to the National Criminal Justice Reference Service.
