I find the illustration included with the article interesting. In it, we see the members of Congress in various attitudes of prayer. Some are standing with head bowed, some are kneeling, some are sitting--reflecting the pluralistic nature of the group.
Am I correct? Is there one guy with his back to the minister with his hands covering his ears?

I think that man is leaning on a support in front of him, and his hands are over his face. That’s the curls of his wig over his ears.
Our Founders were tough guys: listening to opinions or sentiments different from their own didn’t cause them to fall to pieces and run to Mommy.

no the back of his left hand is over his eyes, and he has a halo of hair on the back of his head which almost merges with the left hand to make it appear that way. Overall your assessment is correct on the pluralistic nature of the group.
