Two Christian Schools Face off On Football Field; But When They Want to Pray, THIS Happens

School-sponsored prayers have been banned in public schools for half a century, but now non school-sponsored prayers are being banned on the public high school football field — even when both teams on the field are playing for private Christian schools.

According to Bay News 9, the Florida High School Athletics Association (FHSAA) is intervening in a championship game at the Orlando Citrus Bowl stadium between Cambridge Christian School and University Christian School. The FHSAA sent letters to both schools banning their 30-second pre-game prayer from being broadcasted over the PA system.

The FHSAA explains, "The facility is a public facility, predominantly paid for with public tax dollars, [making] the facility 'off limits' under federal guidelines and precedent court cases. We cannot legally permit or grant permission for such an activity."

Both Christian schools are upset about the action and say public prayer is a regular part of their games.

Tim Euler, who heads Cambridge Christian School, points out a contradiction with the FHSAA's ruling.

"The state legislature opens up every one of their sessions in prayer and that facility is paid for with tax dollars. So, as far as I'm concerned, neither of their two reasons to deny both schools' request to have a corporate prayer is valid."

Do you think he makes a valid argument?
