Invitation from Coach Paul Calley: The Bryant Hornet Football Team Worship is this Sunday, Aug 25th at Otter Creek Assembly of God, 10:30 am kickoff. Our guest speaker will be Dr Fitz Hill, President of Arkansas Baptist College. I would like to invite anyone and everyone that would like to join us in worshiping The Lord and kicking off the football season the right way! This tradition has been a blessing to me, our staff, our players and all of our families and we would love for you to come and share in this exceptional experience with us!
Shouldn't this religious invitation be made through the Otter Creek church Facebook account instead of through the public school Facebook account? This seems completely inappropriate.
FFRF Staff Attorney Patrick Elliott sent an August 22 letter to Bryant Public Schools Superintendent Randy Rutherford requesting he cancel the team religious worship service.
The school is violating the Constitution by endorsing and promoting a religious event. The school will trample on the Constitution by allowing the school- and coach-sponsored "Bryant Hornet Football Team Worship" to be held as planned.
"Bryant Public Schools has a duty to remain neutral toward religion," Elliott wrote. "By one of its employees scheduling a religious service for a school athletic team, the district has breached that duty."

Is that a picture of Reggie Corbitt?
