Alabama Superintendent Reportedly Bans Public Prayer at High School Football Games

09/22/2011 – FoxNews.com An Alabama  superintendent is reportedly banning public prayer before high school football  games over claims by one parent that the 10-year-old practice violates the First  Amendment.

John Mullins, superintendent of Arab City Schools in  Arab, Ala., said he chose to toss out pregame prayer at Arab High School after  receiving a letter from the Freedom From Religion Foundation, WAAY-TV  reports.

The Wisconsin-based group reportedly wrote the  letter on behalf of an anonymous parent who objected to prayer at  games.

“Yes in our personal lives in Arab we are Christian,  but our priority is to serve the students of this school system and provide them  education” Mullins told the station. “And we at this time can’t commit the  energy and time and financial resources to battle a case we most likely will not  win.”

Mullins said the high school football games will  instead begin with a moment of silence.

“We wish we could continue praying but we can’t,” he  said.
