A small school district in Missouri is one of the latest to be threatened with a lawsuit by an atheist group – but parents and students are fighting back.

When the Freedom From Religion Foundation threatened earlier this month to sue District R-VI in Tipton unless it ceased prayers before board meetings, stopped singing a hymn at school events, and removed a portrait of Jesus, school officials quickly surrendered. The district superintendent told FOX News’ Todd Starnes that after reviewing its practices, the district discontinued those “that could be construed as an endorsement of religion.”

OneNewsNow sought comment from Liberty Counsel founder and chairman Mat Staver, who says there was no need for the district to do that.
