Public School Holds Christian Rally

A public school in South Carolina flagrantly violated the Constitution recently by holding a christian themed assembly for students, on school property, during school hours.

On Sept. 1 this year, New Heights Middle School officials held an evangelical revival assembly intended to 'save' students by encouraging them to accept Jesus Christ into their hearts.

Students were urged to sign a pledge dedicating themselves to Christ.
