One of America's largest secular legal organizations is pressuring a Mississippi college football coach to end the team's tradition of praying before and after each practice, suggesting that having coach-led prayer at a public college is unconstitutional.
The East Mississippi Community College football team, which was featured on the 2016 Netflix documentary series "Last Chance U," has come under fire from the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist legal group which claims that the coach is "domineering" and "calls into question whether the players' participation can be considered voluntary."
As the Netflix series showcased the EMCC Lions in their unsuccessful quest to win their fourth-straight National Junior College Athletic Association National Football Championship in 2015, the EMCC head coach Buddy Stephens was shown regularly leading his team in the Lord's Prayer. more >>

Conservative Christian brothers David and Jason Benham are speaking out against the government's "godless agenda" that stems from the "hippie sexual revolution" and the Obama administration's transgender directives that pressure schools to give boys access to girls bathrooms and locker rooms.
"From the hippie sexual revolution of the '60s to the gender unicorn today — our school rooms are the fertile soil for godless government agendas," the Benhams wrote in a Facebook post Monday.
David Benham elaborated on those thoughts in a speech he made last week at the Charlotte Mecklenburg School Board meeting where he talked about the Department of Education's directive. more >>
Family Research Council's Travis Weber is advising parents, teachers and school administrators not to fall into the trap that The Satanic Temple group is setting by launching its "After School Satan Club."
Taking advantage of a United States Supreme Court ruling from 2001 holding that schools that have a "limited public forum" open to after school Christian clubs can not discriminate against other groups looking to use that forum to advance their worldview, The Satanic Temple has helped launch After School Satan Clubs (ASSC) in a number of elementary schools around the nation.
With the help of volunteers, the ASSC is being launched at public schools that already have Good News Clubs or any other after school Christian clubs in existence. more >>
In an interview with The Christian Post, conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza responded to criticisms about his recently released documentary and accompanying book titled Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party, and talked about his reluctant support for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

"From her Alinskyite past to her hopes for America's progressive future, the presumptive Democratic nominee is revealed to be little more than a political gangster intent on controlling the nation's wealth," noted Regnery Publishing. more >>
