Mississippi school district fined $7500 for opening assembly with prayer

Allowing a school assembly honoring high-achievers to open with a prayer made one Mississippi school district $7,500 poorer – and a student who sued $2,500 richer.

The Rankin, Miss., public school district was hit with the fine after U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves said it defied his prior order barring prayers school events. According to the judge, the prayer violated a 2013 court settlement that ordered the district to stop “proselytizing Christianity.” The alleged violation, which came at an assembly last year for students who scored above 22 on their ACT college admissions test, prompted the judge to apply fines for that and another incident, in which Gideons International was permitted to hand out Bibles to elementary school students.

“The district’s breach did not take very long and it occurred in a very bold way,” Reeves wrote in his judgment. “Its conduct displays that the district did not make any effort to adhere to the agreed judgment.”

    Evolution is a man centered world view which does not tolerate a creation God centered world view. God will prove Himself right in due time. America needs a Bible centered revival.

      The same America that was founded on the concept of a separation between church and state? The same America that doesn’t mention Christianity or any any religion in its Constitution? The same America that had a non-denominational Pledge of Allegiance starting in 1892, but added “under God” 62 years later? That America?

      1. Seedman says:

        Pray for revival. America is on a fast track for hell led by evil progressive unconstitutional Democrats. People perish for a lack of the knowledge and acceptance of His will.

        If you are so unhappy here then get the hell out. I think Syria will let you in. To stupid to find the door?

          Interesting. What makes you think I’m unhappy here? It seems like the people here, whining about everything under the sun, are the unhappy ones. “America – Love It or Leave It” used to be the redneck motto, remember? Now you all want to live in a country that you’d like to have, not as it is. You don’t want to live by majority rule, the cornerstone of democracy. Why not take a lesson from Donald Rumsfeld and deal with reality rather than YOUR Fantasyland that you want everyone else to live in.

    What part of “the prayer violated a 2013 court settlement that ordered the district to stop “proselytizing Christianity” did the school not understand? Idiots.
