Football Prayer

NPR's Nina Totenberg reports on today's oral arguments before the Supreme Court on whether public schools can start football games with a prayer. The case was filed by Catholic and Mormon families in Santa Fe, Texas, where they said their rights as members of minority religions were violated by the prayers. Lawyers arguing for the school district say the government is not imposing religion just because students pray during the student-led "message" given before games.
