Colorado High School Sued Over Ban On Student Prayer Group – Yahoo News

The Alliance got involved in the Pine Creek case after a senior, Chase Windebank, said he and other students were stopped from meeting in an unoccupied choir room twice a week to pray, sing Christian songs, and discuss topical issues from a religious perspective. It said the school told the students the meetings, which had been taking place for three years, could continue, but that any religious speech must stop. Lawyers for the Alliance, which describes itself as a non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to live out their faith in freedom, wrote to the school last month saying the policy violates the First Amendment. Academy District Twenty said the meetings took place during a period known as “seminar,” which is considered instructional time.
