AU Ends Mandatory Recitation of Lord’s Prayer at City-Sponsored Youth Basketball League - Wichita, KS

The coach of a city-sponsored youth-league recreational basketball team required his players to recite the Lord’s Prayer after every practice and game. AU wrote to the City to explain that this practice violated the Constitution, and to ask that the City stop the practice. The City agreed and informed the coach that he would no longer be allowed to include the prayer at this activity.
