Mom banned from praying at school steps each morning

(New Hampshire Union Leader) School officials have told the mother of two high school students that she may no longer deliver speeches on the front steps of Concord High School as students enter the building each morning.

Lizarda Urena’s speeches were in the form of prayers and Bible readings. Superintendent Christine Rath said they won’t be allowed to resume in the fall.

Urena, an anti-school-bullying activist, began arriving before school and praying after hearing reports that bullets had been found in a school washroom in February.

The Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation heard about the prayers and complained.
