School prayer controversy in the city of Fayette. The school says ‘let the kids pray.’
The issue is a morning prayer session held by students at Fayette High School — they’re with the Fellowship of Christian students. A group known as the American Humanist Association filed a complaint — saying the prayer sessions are not constitutional. But Fayette’s superintendant is not backing down. She says the kids meet before classes start — it’s voluntary, no one is forced to show up and pray. The matter is headed to court.
