Liberty Institute, the largest legal organization dedicated solely to defending and restoring religious liberty in the U.S., announced in a statement Tuesday that it sent a demand letter on behalf of Cambridge Christian School, a private Christian school in Tampa, Florida, over what the organization says is a violation of religious freedom. The organization is also threatening legal action if the FHSAA does not apologize.
