Ashdown, Ark., School District Superintendent Jason Sanders appeared on Fox & Friends Thursday morning discussing prayer before the school’s football games.
The Freedom from Religion Foundation of Madison is challenging the prayer as a violation of student’s First Amendment rights.
Sanders says that the prayer is student initiated and stopping it would violate the student’s First Amendment rights.
When asked if students would be praying before the game this Friday Sanders said he was told they would be and he expects a larger showing than last Friday and he will honor and protect their right to do so.
Ashdown faces Malvern at home this Friday.
