(Worthy News) – A Christian school in Florida is arguing for its right to air prayers on the loudspeaker at state championship sports events, pointing to the Supreme Court’s ruling this summer in favor of a Washington state public high school football coach who prayed on the 50-yard-line after games.
Cambridge Christian School in Tampa, Florida, filed an appeal with the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit this week, asking the court to reverse a lower court’s ruling siding with the Florida High School Athletic Association, which banned the prayers.
The Florida High School Athletic Association issued a new rule in 2015 preventing two Christian schools from broadcasting a pre-game prayer over the loudspeaker before a championship game played at the Citrus Bowl, a stadium owned and operated by the city of Orlando. However, prayers were allowed during regular games, according to court papers. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
