A high school in Birmingham, Alabama accused of violating the First Amendment for broadcasting prayers before school football games may have to stop the practice after a religious freedom organization voiced concern.

The Hewitt-Trussville City School District received a letter from the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) this week requesting the district’s high school stop playing a prayer ahead of games because, according to the letter, “Public school events must be secular to protect the freedom of conscience of all students.”

FFRF received a complaint about the school’s prayers from a concerned parent, reported Wednesday.

The complaint specified that “prayer is broadcast over the loudspeaker before Hewitt-Trussville High School football games.”

    All these pantywaist who let minor things get under their skin are nothing but worthless, self-centered idiots who let “words” get the better of them.
    I am agnostic but have no problem is someone speaks/read/write what they call a prayer as it is only “words” in my way of thinking. If I do not like to hear it/read it/see it, i IGNORE it. This would be the same as any other written book or song; if I do not like it, I turn it off. End of problem.
