At the risk of chatting you up , YES it's illegal for a public school to sponsor such prayers. It has been ruled a violation of the First Amendment. That is why Lauderdale Co. doesn't just tell the FFRF to go away.
You ole chatterer, you.
Sorry, I was asking for the law which allowed them to rule that way. I was hoping someone had it handy. I may or may not agree with their ruling or it may not apply to this case, not that it would make a difference to anyone but myself...haha...I don't see how the First Amendment applies to prayer at a high school football game?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
