"Let Us Pray" Shirts For Bell County Game

{Kentucky}...Friday night will mark Bell County High School's first home football game since the district was forced to do away with the pre-game prayer after the district received a complaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation in August, and state attorneys advised them to discontinue the prayer. A group of students came to Ideal Print Shop in Middlesboro wanting to get a few shirts printed that said "Let Us Pray." The store owners decided to print the shirts for free and give them to anyone who wants one. Shawn Collins, the owner of Ideal Print Shop, says they have printed a little over 2,300 shirts. Supporters of the prayer plan to wear the shirts at Friday night's game and say the Lord's Prayer aloud during the moment of silence.
