“Pastor Steven Andrew states: 'Our children need God back in schools,’ and he is calling Christians nationwide to bring back the Holy Bible and Christian prayer to schools,” the memo said. “The First Amendment was for Christianity, not other religions.”
The Freedom from Religion Foundation, a secular rights group, sent a letter to the school district asking for the prayer sessions to be stopped. Annie Laurie Gaylor, the group’s co-president, said she was “horrified” by the language in Davis’ memo.
“That would be like saying the constitution only applies to white people,” Gaylor said.
