The god problem in the Lebanon, Missouri school system

As reported by Jerry Coyne on Why Evolution Is True:

I am informed by the diligent attorneys at the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) in Madison, Wisconsin that the Lebanon, Missouri school board has not answered the FFRF’s second letter to the Superintendent of Schools about Principal Kevin Lowery’s prayer at a public school. That letter, shown below, was sent three weeks ago, on June 24. I didn’t publish it at the FFRF’s request, so that the folks in Lebanon would have time to respond without pressure. (I doubt that my publishing it would constitute “pressure,” though.)

As you may recall, Principal Lowery prayed at the Lebanon High School graduation—a blatant violation of the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment—and the FFRF complained, as did as several past and present students.  The school board and school superintendent ignored the FFRF’s first letter sent on June 2. If you don’t remember that fracas, some of the posts are at this search. I personally complained to the school board, and got no response save a snarky response from member Kim Light.

The school officials in the Lebanon School District have not responded to either letter. In other words, they’re stonewalling, hoping this will go away.

It won’t.

Here’s the entire post: FFRF complains again, Lebanon school board stonewalls (a bad move) « Why Evolution Is True.
