PIEDMONT, Ala. (AP) - A public high school in eastern Alabama has stopped using their football stadium’s public address system for pregame prayers after being accused of supporting institutionalized religion.

WBMA-TV reported Wednesday (https://bit.ly/10C8Vg1 ) that Piedmont High School stopped using the public address system for prayers after receiving letters from the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

The station reports that a group of parents and students gathered on the field to recite the Lord’s Prayer before a game last week.
