    School District Fined $7,500 after Pastor Prays at Event

    A Mississippi public school district has been fined $7,500 after a minister prayed during a district-wide honors assembly.


    According to the article, the assembly was optional (and, apparently the prayer was the only religious element). And, $5000 of that fine was for allowing bibles to be passed out (with no relationship to the assembly). I kind of wish the school district fought this harder, took it to a higher court. "Our policies are content neutral. If a Rabbi or a Mullah wished to make use of our facilities or pass out literature, we would likewise allow that out of respect for Free Speech and Academic Tolerance."
