Football Game Prayers in Liberal: Resolved

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

Ian Smith, legal counsel at Americans United, reported that the situation in Liberal, KS has resolved itself. The Liberal School Board had previously voted to allow the school's public address system to be used by students to pray before football games. The Board voted to rescind its policy and has replaced it with an acceptable policy.

Ian noted that the papers did not cover this new story, and it was due to his own investigation that he discovered that the board had made this decision. Therefore, AU did not need to respond and situation has been corrected.
