North Carolina football coach asked to stop praying with his team
A football coach was recently ordered to stop praying with his students, according to The Huffington Post. The North Carolina man led students in prayer after his team’s games, and even attended a student’s baptism ceremony, HuffPost reported. But the Freedom From Religion Foundation sent the public high school a letter that asked him to stop doing such.
"It is a violation of the Constitution for the Mooresville High football coach to organize, lead, or participate in prayers or other religious proselytizing before, during, or after games and practices,” the FFRF’s letter read, according to HuffPost. "We request that all coach-led prayer and coach participation in any team religious activity cease immediately.”
