Atheist group tells Georgia high school football team to punt the prayers

A Georgia high school football program may have God on its side, but not the Constitution, according to critics who say prayer and proselytization have no place in the playbook.

Football coaches at Chestatee High School in Gainesville are accused of quoting scripture on team documents and pre-game banners and regularly leading the War Eagles in prayer in a religious blitz the American Humanist Association (AHA) declares unconstitutional.

“There’s really no defense for doing this,” AHA attorney Monica Miller told FoxNews.com. “It’s not even solely student prayer — it’s teachers and coaches praying with students. And we have reason to believe it’s not an isolated event.” ...

Thank you "nothing to do". It seems he was an Episcopalian/Christian? and was very involved in the American Bible Society.. The account of the flag ode does seem to include "in God we trust" in the 4th verse. Does anyone ever sing the 4th verse? While he may have meant well and a Christian can appreciate his motive, the motto wouldn't be and hasn't been applicable to this country for quite awhile as we are not a Christian nation which may be relevant when one considers that we have not been very victorious in warfare. I realize Christians can be very sensitive when it comes to national patriotism but our allegiance should be to God alone.

Mr. Key was a devout Christian. He fought against slavery and was a long standing member of the American Bible Society, so His God would be your God.

Oh dear, it may not be an isolated event. It's always fascinating how ignorant of the Bill of Rights and history athiests can be. Hard to find the federal government endorsing a particular denominaton in coaches praying with their team, so one might think athiests would be embarrassed to to reveal themselves like this. Who would suspect flatulence could come from the mouth?

It is, but, just as our founders were never specific, as many were Deists and Masons, it was never clear which "God". Though there is much truth to that motto if it refers to the "gods" of this world.

That high school should tell the American Humanist Association to mind their own business as it is none of their business if the coaches, teachers and students want to pray before football games and quote scripture in team documents and banners.
