FFRF ends football prayers in Mississippi, Kentucky schools

Recent letters of complaint by the Freedom From Religion Foundation have ended longstanding violations in DeSoto County, Miss., and Bell County, Ky., involving illegal prayer before school football games.

The School Board in DeSoto County, Hernando, Miss., last night reaffirmed a policy it adopted eight years ago barring school prayers. The action came after FFRF’s Aug. 10 letter of complaint.

"Our current policy is not to have prayers in football games and we're going to abide by that which we believe the law to be," said Keith Treadway, board attorney. "We will not have prayer over the PA. The principals have all expressed they are aware of the law and intend to abide by it,” Treadway told the DeSoto Times Tribune.
