Pre-Game Prayer Recited At Marianna High School Football Game

By  | 

Marianna- Just before Friday night's football game at Marianna High School, students, parents, and even the players went through with reciting the Lord's Prayer.

News Channel 7 told you on Thursday how the Jackson County School Board had cautioned principals about organized prayer at sporting events, but that didn't stop the several hundred fans and both football teams from continuing on with the planned prayer.

One student said it should send a strong message about prayer in public schools.

"It just shows that with God anything's possible, nothing can stop us," said Marianna High School student Trenton Nobles.

The American Civil Liberties Union was not involved in the Jackson County School Board's decision about pre-game prayers, but it said it's against the law for school administrators and teachers to either encourage or discourage them.
