    Considering her husband was twice removed from office for violating the law, I am pretty sure she is not the best source of information on the law.

    Joan Williams thank you! I can always use every prayer. And that is the vents thing she can do to. This is and was a student led movement. If politicians and administrators get involved it loses the power, not to mention creates a violation to the constitution. As long as the children are running it, the FFRF has no power or ability to do anything.

    If we don’t want God in our schools, workplace or homes, then how can we expect Him to protect us from all the evil and violence in those same places? We asked Him to leave by saying it’s against the law to pray, read our Bibles or talk about Him, so we are reaping what we sow. Christians have to stand up and protect our rights.

    Christians* are persecuted for belief in God* and the Bible*. However, that does not occur in the United States of America, in part due to monolithic representation at all levels of government, and a near sacred constitution that guarantees the protection of free exercise. You are not a victim Mrs. Williams, and it’s pretty insulting to Christian martyrs to claim that you are.

    Jennifer Chinnis Lawley. It’s at a school that is State funded. State funds help pay for the school, therein the game being played. It’s pretty simple and clear. Stop shouting at the rain. Trust the simple truths in life. You will cause yourself much unneeded stress by trying to change them. Our ancestors left England because of state sanctioned religion. That’s what our forefathers wrote so passionately about. And, why it is in our Constitution. The separation of church and state.

    Jonathan Wood

    Show me where in the Constitution you see separation of church and state.
    It’s not there.

    If you don’t want to hear the pray then come to the game late, put on your earphones, ignore the prayer or what ever it takes for you to NOT hear the prayer. There are some people who demand hearing the prayer… now what? You want to take away my right to hear or participate in the prayer? I think NOT!

  49. 56

    Graham Walden

    “The First Amendment has erected a wall between church and state. That wall must be kept high and impregnable. We could not approve the slightest breach.” -Thomas Jefferson

    Trussville takes money from the State and National governments. Therefore there can be no religious ceremonies, such as prayer, led by school officials. It’s pretty simple y’all. It really is. You want prayer like this before a game? Be a private school with no government funding.

  52. 59

    Cathy Bean

    Keep the prayer HTHS…

  53. 60

    Leslie Hickerson

    Jonathan Wood, if public Christian prayer is is the only prayer offered and tolerated, then it is very much what you’re discussing. Unless, of course, everyone is willing to support and participate in similarly public expressions of faith from all faiths.

  54. 61

    Jonathan Wood

    The phrase “separation between church & state” is generally traced to a January 1, 1802 letter by Thomas Jefferson, addressed to the Danbury Baptist Association in Connecticut, and published in a Massachusetts newspaper.

  55. 62

    Jonathan Wood

    Still not in the Constitution.
    And round and round we go.

  56. 63

    Graham Walden

    Jonathan Wood be smarter than this. I know you are. That phrase is not in the Constitution, I’ll grant you that. But, one of its writer’s is who I quoted. This is a very basic concept. The most basic. And, if it was a Muslim prayer you all would have a duck.

  57. 64

    Jonathan Wood

    The only problem with that is that we are founded on Christian beliefs.
    Like it or not.

    Oh, lord, no one has taken the ability to pray out of schools. No one has taken God out of schools.

    Chealen Martin

    I’ll actively vote against the Trussville school superintendent. Easy enough decision. praying over a loud speaker is a lot less offensive than the rap songs that are played loudly all the way down to pee wee football…

  88. 100

    Chealen Martin

    Michael Crabtree if they are offensive they aren’t allowed… use common sense here. If they are satanic, that would most likely offend people. If people want to lead a Muslim prayer that doesn’t hurt my feelings or bother me as long as they don’t end with “death to infidels”

    Why don’t liberals get offended when rap music that is blatantly disrespectful to women is played on the loud speaker? Bc it doesn’t fit their narrative… and people look for times where Christians are persecuted… here you go

    Angie Bunt Smith
    So I guess if you prayed to “Him”, before a game to protect the players from injury and the fans from…. whatever and a player gets hurt or /and someone falls down the steps, this would give you a reason to be upset with “Him” because he didn’t protect everyone? You didn’t ask him to leave. So.. what happened?!
    So, same scenario except you didn’t have prayer before the game. Player gets hurt, fan falls down! Now see! No need to blame God for not following through!
    Gods happy! Everybody’s happy!

    Judy Baker

    I wish people would read the original documents of our founding fathers and those who created the documents to govern our country, and learn what separation of church and state is and is not instead of relying on what politicians and groups like FFR represent as the truth. Separation is our freedom to choose the religion we wish to practice and not have it imposed upon us as was done in Europe/England before this country declared its independence.

  102. 114

    Naman Renfro

    Exactly Judy, the non-Christians at these events hosted on government property should not have any particular religion imposed on them. If people want to practice their religion they can do it at church.

  103. 116

    Michelle Bate

    The Constitution is the law of the land. Not the Bible. America is a Secular Nation. Not a Christian nation. No amount of wishful thinking will ever make your deity real. Public schools are tax payer funded. This means no Religion in schools. My not yours nor any other religions. I am sure if any other religion pulled this stunt all of you Christians would be hopping mad and having a fit. If you want prayer in your school then send your children to a Christian school. Send them to church. Pray with them on your own time NOT ON MY DIME…I am so sick of this crap in Alabama. Stop shoving this crap down people’s throats. Not everyone is brainwashed. Young people need to go to school for an education. Education is the only way for them to learn that Religion is basically ignorance and a lack of science and logic.

  104. 117

    Sandra Mosley Gerhardt

    As a member of the Panel of American Women in Birmingham years ago, I learned a different perspective than I’m seeing here. A Jewish mother told of her little girl being made to “go stand in the hall” at school because she failed to stand & recite the Lord’s Prayer with the other children. Her mom said that because of that type of repetitive abuse her child had to receive psychiatric care. This is just one of many, many stories I could share – from black mamas, Asian mamas, even Roman Catholic mamas. And this was the early 1970s. Our nation has become much more diverse since then. So has Alabama & even Trussville. As a lifelong follower of Jesus, I believe that Christian awareness & kindness towards those different from me is the way Christ would have me walk.

    Absolutely Zero right now. But both of my sons went to high school there. It doesn’t matter if I have to a student there or not. The law is the law. I pay taxes that fund all public schools in Alabama. Keep the religious garbage out of schools.

    Tammy McCown is that true? Maybe it’s not a city wide election, but it looks like a vote happens after nominations http://images.pcmac.org/Uploads/TrussvilleCity/TrussvilleCity/Departments/DocumentsSubCategories/Documents/Minutes%20-%2006-05-06.pdf

    And if those board members support pulling prayer, we will get a lot of petitions started and I’ll get the necessary signatures.

  119. 134

    Allison Burke

    Yes!!! This is America!! A CHRISTIAN nation–founded on Christian values….we should absolutely pray @ games!!!! ❤️ the separation of church and state was made to keep the government out of our churches….contrary to the liberal’s opinion.

    Sharon Carroll Bradshaw Good Lord, , it sounds like you’re looking for those exact five words in that specific order because you’re struggling to extract meaning from complex reading material. Separation of church and state is very much part of the first amendment, but I can see how you got confused. The first amendment doesn’t directly refer to it as such, nor is it bolded and in all caps. Jefferson was writing about the concept and practice. The Constitution is not a word search.

  127. 142

    Amber Busler Donlan

    If I’m reading this right they’re saying that they’re using the PA system to have the prayer and that is what they want stopped, Not asking that people should stop praying all together.

    How is it sad for someone to want everyone included in extra curriculars?

  135. 151

    Michelle Bate

    Religion is not an extra curricular. Religion is a Religion. Do you guys know that Islam Judaism and Christianity are of the same Abrahamic Deity? So you are saying it is OK for RELIGION to be taught as an extra curricular activity as long as it is Christianity. Just not Judaism or Satanism. Or Islam. Am I right? Just your Religion and none of the other ones. This is why your is not allowed. If you have one then you open the door for all of them. America is not a Christian nation it is what is called Secular. Separation of church and state is the law of the land. Regardless of your ignorant wishful thinking. Adam Bryant McAllister. Della Goldsmith. David Wilkinson. Speak up. Tell us how you want your God in schools but not the ones you don’t believe in.

    Della Goldsmith. When telling the truth is considered hate then one must be considered a brainwashed fool. You have fallen in line through the Propaganda. You must be so proud.

    Michelle Bate check yourself… im referring to the football game, not religion. Football IS an extra curricular.

    My point being, extra curriculars, on a public level – should be secular.

    Also, for as much as you know on theology and it’s history, I’m surprised you dont know the first thing about grammar, including reading comprehension.

    I do understand… but they can’t afford to lose the right to pray also.

    I do not think they should be told not to pray What’s wrong with people!!!

    No one is being told not to pray. They’re just being told they can’t use a government facility to pray/endorse a particular religion. That is already illegal.

    I would love to see prayer in schools and games. Why should we stop praying because of a few people don’t want to hear it and punish the 5,000 that do. That has never may any sense to me.

    Which kinds of prayers would you like to see Kathy; Islamic prayers, Satanic prayers or Christian prayers? Because if you have one, you have to have them all…cause you know, the constitution.

    I really don’t care about the constitution, God said to share the gospel. Not when we feel like it or when it’s convenient. And I don’t care what people think. I care what God thinks. If everyone wants to exercise their religion then so be it.

    Are you sure you don’t care about the the constitution? Because it grants US citizens some pretty decent privelages not afforded to a lot of other countries. One of those privelages is the fact that you can’t use government property to endorse your particular brand of religion. If you want to share the gospel, the constitution also protects your right to do so, just not using taxpayer’s money.
