Breaking News: Fung to Discuss Prayer Banner Lawsuit on MSNBC Today
Tuesday, April 05, 2011
Cranston Mayor Allan Fung will discuss the ACLU lawsuit against his city and school committee over a controversial prayer banner at Cranston West H.S. live today at 12:40 p.m. on MSNBC.
The complaint comes from a sophomore student who describes herself as an atheist, in regard to an auditorium banner which begins "Our Heavenly Father" and ends with "Amen." The issue is about the separation of church and state, and some arguments will involve a landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling of 1992 on the same subject that was brought by a Providence family against a local middle school. Also involved is the cost to the city of defending against the complaint.
