Baylor University has denied accusations by a conservative student group that a recent chapel service included a prayer to Mother Nature or “mother mystery.”

On Feb. 12, Native American author and poet Kaitlin Curtice spoke at a scheduled chapel service at the Waco, Texas-based Christian school. During her opening and closing prayers, she did not name God or Jesus, but used the word “mystery.”

Following the chapel service, the Baylor chapter of the Young Conservatives of Texas expressed multiple concerns with Curtice’s remarks in her 40-minute lecture. A video of Curtice’s talk and prayers can be seen here and at the bottom of this article.

“Very disappointed that the Chapel staff has elected to ignore our conversation last year and chose to bring in another speaker, Kaitlin Curtice, whose message ignored the gospel and instead focused on woke politics,” tweeted Baylor YCT last week.

“As Christians, we don’t pray to ‘Mother Mystery.’ We believe in ‘one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Only-begotten, begotten of the Father before all ages …’”

In another tweet last week, the student group went on to label Curtice as the “most recklessly anti-Christian speaker yet” to speak at a Baylor chapel service.

However, Baylor Assistant Vice President of media and public relations, Lori Fogelman, told news station KWTX that no such prayer happened.
