HS football team leads community in post-game prayer after school board tells coaches and teachers they no longer can: ‘Satan’s power was defeated tonight’

After a school board in Tennessee told coaches and teachers they could no longer lead students in prayer, a high school football team stepped up in a big way to support religious freedom — and people from across the country are taking notice.

What happened?

Putnam County Schools administrators informed faculty and staff last week that moving forward they would be prohibited from leading students in prayer, WZTV-TV reported.

“The case law not allowing prayer or proselytizing is clear. Courts have consistently ruled that prayer and proselytizing can not be sponsored by schools or school personnel,” administrators said in the memo following a complaint issued by Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
