Last December the Florida High School Athletic Association refused to allow a private Christian school to deliver a pregame prayer over a loudspeaker before a championship football game. Now Cambridge Christian School in Tampa is fighting back in court.
The case stems from a Dec. 4th game between Cambridge Christian and University Christian School. The game was played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando.
Cambridge asked permission to use the public address system to deliver a pregame prayer – a long-standing school tradition.
“We are raising godly young men that can make a difference in the world they live in,” Coach Bob Dare said. “This is why CCS has committed to praying before every home football game.”
However, the Florida High School Athletic Association denied their request – and refused to let them use the taxpayer-funded microphone.
Headmaster Euler stated that he never expected to see the day when a Christian school would have to go to court to defend their right to pray.
We now live in a country where prayer, even among Christians, is under the scrutiny and censorship of Big Brother. Let us all pray that they win their case in court.
