SUPREME COURT HEARS ARGUMENTS IN SCHOOL-PRAYER CASE

    WASHINGTON, DC (CWNews.com) - The US Supreme Court on Wednesday heard arguments in case involving a Texas public school district and its policy allowing a student to lead prayers before football games.

    The Santa Fe Independent School District policy officially allows the student body to elect a representatives to deliver any "message or invocation" before games. Three families challenged the policy because it compels their children to listen to and engage in religious speech they consider offensive.

    Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice, representing the school district, told the court that the policy was "neutral as to whether the speech was religious or secular" and as such does not violate the establishment clause of the Constitution.
