MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WordNews.org) Oct. 30, 2017 – The Foundation for Moral Law is urging school districts in Alabama to fight demand from the Freedom from Religion Foundation and others attempting to prevent prayer at after-school athletic events.
The Foundation for Moral Law, based in Montgomery, says the Freedom from Religion Foundation demanded in an Oct. 23 letter to Trussville City Schools that it stop allowing student-led prayer at athletic events.
On Oct. 27, the school received another letter, from the Foundation for Moral Law saying the Freedom from Religious Foundation “has misinterpreted the First Amendment and the case law on this issue.” The Foundation for Moral Law noted that the Freedom From Religion Foundation sends out hundreds of letters demanding that various religious practices cease, adding: “They often fail to follow through with legal action if local officials refuse to cave in to their demands.”
“Officials should realize that these threatening letters say only what the FFRF wishes the Constitution said, not what it actually says, ” said Foundation for Moral Law President Kayla Moore. “Officials should realize that these threatening letters say only what the FFRF wishes the Constitution said, not what it actually says. The Foundation for Moral Law is willing to talk with school officials and school attorneys directly, analyze their policies, and determine what if anything needs to be done to ensure compliance with the Constitution. Please feel free to contact us if we can be of help. That’s what we were formed to do.”
