DENVER (AP) - A high school in southern Colorado is facing a religious discrimination lawsuit from a teacher who says on-campus prayer and distribution of religious materials violates the constitution’s First Amendment.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1BoRuuW) Cowboy Church at Crossroads rents out space from Florence High School for Sunday services, and offers morning prayer and Bible study and pizza during lunch in a school classroom.

Fremont Re-2 School District officials say they haven’t been served the lawsuit yet, but Pastor Randy Pfaff said the constitution was never meant to keep religion out of schools.

Attorney Paul Maxon says Robert Basevitz’s lawsuit seeks to end the school’s involvement with the church, attorney’s fees and any other compensation the court deems appropriate.

Principal Brian Schipper and Superintendent Rhonda Vendetti are also named in the lawsuit.
