Complaint made about middle school prayer rally

Sep 22, 2011 9:55:00 AM - thestate.com
A group that supports separation of church and state is complaining that a middle school in Chesterfield County held a Christian-themed rally during the school day.

Annie Laurie Gaylor with the Freedom from Religion Foundation says the rally featured Christian rapper B-SHOC and youth evangelist Christian Chapman and was held at New Heights Middle School in Jefferson on Sept. 1.

Gaylor says the event violates the Constitution and has sent a letter of complaint to the school district.

District spokesman Ken Buck says Superintendent John Williams got the Foundation's complaint in an email, and he was looking into it.

The group wants the district to investigate and instruct schools that such events shouldn't be held. Reports on the rally were posted on the school's website and on YouTube.
