FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A non-profit law firm has asked the North Dakota State High School Activities Association to suspend its ban on prayer during a football playoff game at Fargo Shanley High School.

The game is slated for Saturday

KFGO says attorney Peter Breen of the Thomas More Society in Chicago is representing Shanley High School. Breen says he thinks the policy may be unconstitutional.

Breen says the Supreme Court has ruled it’s unconstitutional to require private schools to give up their religious identity in order to participate in government sponsored programs.

The school association says it is taking the request seriously.
