Utah School Board Will Keep on Praying

According to the Deseret News (Utah), members of the state school board continue to permit payer at their public meetings despite objections from atheists.

People must remain free to believe whatever they want and to engage in religious rituals in the privacy of their own homes and in places of worship. But where does this need to bring religion into the public sphere come from?

Utah Atheists are clearly correct in their statement that opening school board meetings with prayer gives the appearance of an endorsement of religion by the public school system. This is a problem.
