Those traditions were especially evident at West Laurens High School where the marching band performed great songs of the faith and folks bowed their heads to pray before Friday night football games.
But those traditions are a problem, according to Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a Washington, D.C.-based group that loves to put its nose in other people’s business – especially when it comes to public displays of the Christian faith.
They fired off a letter in May after someone complained about a pre-game prayer and the marching band’s performance of the Christian hymn “How Great Thou Art” – “timed to accentuate the prayer.”
