Mo. School Holds Rel. Sessions Despite Complaint; American Humanist Assoc. Says Sessions Unconst.

A Missouri high school continues to hold prayer sessions on school grounds, despite a legal complaint that claims the sessions are unconstitutional, the CBN (Christian Broadcast Network) website reports today (December 31, 2013).

Fayette (Missouri) Schools Superintendent Tamara Kimball says district administrators have not considered ending the Friday morning sessions since the American Humanist Association (AHA) filed a complaint in November.

The AHA claims the sessions violate the constitutional prohibition against the government establishing an official religion.

The complaint also alleges the sessions occur during school hours, but district officials say they are held before classes officially begin.
