The national non profit group of ‘freethinkers,’ Freedom From Religion Foundation, has filed a complaint against the Mansfield School District. The group is challenging the district in an attempt to force them to cease and desist in activities such as prayer at graduation and other school events.
The notice came at the close of the school year, and was presented at the board meeting held June 18. School Superintendent Robert Ross commented saying he is unsure of what course of action, if any, will need to be taken. He did state, however, that he plans to consult with the district’s attorney to see how they should proceed.
The Wisconsin based FFR is comprised of atheists, agnostics and skeptics whose goal is to rally and enforce the separation of church and state.
