Suit Challenges High School's Assemblies That Promoted Christianity

The American Humanist Association announced yesterday that this week it filed a federal lawsuit against a Flowood, Mississippi high school asserting an Establishment Clause challenge to three mandatory school assemblies that promoted Christianity. The complaint (full text) in M.B. v. Rankin County School District, (SD MS, filed 4/24/2013) alleges that Northwest Rankin High School held mandatory assemblies for various grade levels, led by members of the Pinelake Baptist Church.  The Assembly began with  a video about four troubled young men who found hope through Jesus. Then speakers urged students to embrace Christianity
