University stops endorsing religion at games (December 20, 2021)

Georgia Southern University has agreed to stop promoting and endorsing Christianity at its football games.

An area resident previously reported that Georgia Southern University was promoting and endorsing Christianity and that GSU appeared to be sponsoring a religious event called “Sermon on the Court,” and that the university allows an outside religious leader to act as an official chaplain for its football team.

FFRF Staff Attorney Chris Line wrote to Kyle Marrero, president of GSU, regarding the matter.

In a response from the university’s legal counsel, FFRF was assured that “the institution has taken appropriate follow-up action . . . to ensure that this type of unauthorized activity does not take place again.”
