FOX News. In the wake of the shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio over the weekend, an Alabama high school held a back-to-school worship service in its gym “praying for God’s protective hand” over school children and the nation, despite being targeted by the Freedom From Religion Foundation, which accused the school board of violating the constitution.
“I do not believe we broke the law in having this event on the Fyffe High School campus,” DeKalb County Schools Superintendent Jason Barnett told Fox News.
Hundreds gathered at Fyffe High School in Dekalb County Sunday to pray for safety and protection as part of an annual “Back to School Worship Service” that has been held for the last five years or so.
The FFRF called the event a clear violation of church and state.
