“#Christian Students Told They Can’t Pray at Championship Game”

Attorneys for two Christian high school football teams forbidden to pray before a championship game are asking for an apology.The Liberty Institute issued a demand letter Tuesday to the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) for its “unlawful censorship” of the students and the direct violation of their First Amendment rights.It stems from an incident in December of last year. Florida’s Cambridge Christian School (CCS) was set to compete against University Christian School in their state championship football game. They asked permission to give their pre-game prayer over the loudspeaker – just as they’d done since the 1970’s.
