Silent on burqas, atheist group pressures Texas school district over kindergarten graduation prayer
by Eric Owens
The Freedom from Religion Foundation sent a letter to school officials in Lumberton, Texas expressing concern about a prayer that may have occurred recently at a kindergarten graduation.
The June 3 letter declares that the principal of the Lumberton Early Childhood School committed a "serious violation" of the First Amendment, reports The Beaumont Enterprise. The alleged constitutional transgression occurred when the principal led a prayer in front of a group of young children and their parents prior to a kindergarten graduation ceremony.
The letter explained that an unidentified parent contacted the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
