Students fighting Freedom From Religion for stopping coaches from praying with team

Carter County high school students are pushing back against a national group complaining about post-game prayer.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation asked publically that the coaches refrain from praying with the students following high school basketball games.

The two schools, East Carter High School in Grayson and West Carter High School in Olive Hill, prayed to honor the victims of a then-recent school shooting. A photo of the event, which took place at West Carter, was posted on the school’s Facebook page, and an anonymous concerned citizen sent the post to the FFRF. The FFRF commented publicly on February 9, asking the coaches from the schools to stop praying with their students.

The FFRF is a non-profit organization created in 1976 which stands for keeping religion out of schools and government offices. WMKY
