Second set of religious displays removed (December 2, 2015)

After persuading the Frisco Independent School District in Texas to remove a sign reading “Pray more, worry less” from the Roach Middle School front office in September, FFRF has prompted the district to remove further unconstitutional religious displays from district property.

Staff Attorney Sam Grover sent a complaint to the district on Nov. 19 to object to religious displays in the school district’s Student Opportunity Center. One sign read, “The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you,” while another proclaimed that “Prayer does not change God – it changes me.” The office also contained two crosses with scriptural quotes on them. “All students deserve to learn in an environment free from religious proselytization and endorsement,” Grover wrote.

The district’s attorney informed Grover on Dec. 2 that the displays had been removed, and that all staff had been reminded to ensure there were no religious displays on school grounds.
