Mother Banned From Praying on New Hampshire School Grounds
A woman in New Hampshire has been told that she is no longer allowed to be on school grounds, and pray at the same time.
According to WMUR, Lizarda Urena from Concord, NH has been asked to pray off their school grounds because of Separation of Church and State. The Freedom from Religion Foundation wrote letter to the school asking her to be removed.
Urena has two children who go to school, and she says she prays to protect violence. The school says she’ll have to do that off the property, now.
However Urena may have the law on her side after all. Former state Rep. David Bates says that there is no legitimate reason for her to “suppress her rights to express her rights on public property.”
She says she will continue praying for the children, but while the controversy is going on she’ll do it off school property.
