Christian students at an Alabama high school are pushing back against an atheist group after the school received complaints from the group about a pre-game prayer.
According to Faithwire, the anti-faith group, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, complained that Opelika High School in Alabama violated federal law by praying over the loudspeaker before a game. The group said a parent came to them and said they wanted “to move their children out of the district.”
In response to the complaint, the district told Opelika leadership that they could only have a “moment of silence” before games.
“We recognize that the United States of America is a nation of laws and we will abide by the current law,” OCS Superintendent Mark Neighbors said.
“Our students are allowed to pray, but our coaches are not allowed to participate,” he added, referring to the letter which alleged that coaches were praying with students.
The students, however, responded to the complaint as well. Before the Sept. 13 kickoff, a group of students recited the Lord’s Prayer together and out loud.

“You’re taking [prayer] away from the majority, so now we’re having to go about it a different…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
