Indiana student sues to stop prayer

clipped from www.onenewsnow.com

Associated Press smallINDIANAPOLIS - The top-ranked senior at a suburban Indianapolis high school is asking a federal judge to stop a graduation prayer that the class voted to approve.

The lawsuit by 18-year-old Eric Workman claims the prayer and the vote at Greenwood High School unconstitutionally subject religious practice to majority rule.


The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana filed the lawsuit on Workman's behalf. It says, "He does not believe that anyone should involuntarily be subjected to prayer and religious beliefs."


But Micah Clark, executive director of the American Family Association of Indiana, says, "Part of being an adult is learning to tolerate speech you don't like."
