High School Football Players Who Don’t Understand the Law Defend Their Praying Head Coach

The other day, I posted about how the head football coach at Naperville Central High School in Illinois had been praying with his team:

The Freedom From Religion Foundation had sent a warning letter to the District. In response, Superintendent Dan Bridges promised that the coach didn’t (and wouldn’t) lead prayers.

Atheist Group’s “Let Reason Prevail” Banner, Placed Outside Indiana Courthouse, Stolen

After a long and drawn out battle over a Nativity scene on the grounds of the Franklin County Courthouse in Indiana (which you can read about here), the Freedom From Religion Foundation finally put up their own response to the Christian display late last month.

It was a Secular Nativity, featuring the Founding Fathers, Statue of Liberty, and the Bill of Rights. There was also a banner that read “At this season of the Winter Solstice, LET REASON PREVAIL. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth & superstition that hardens hearts & enslaves minds.”
