article imageThe Coach Who Lead Prayer, Or Did He?

By allenbell     Oct 7, 2007 in Politics
If a coach bows his head during a student led prayer is he endorsing prayer? Some that are involved in the national debate over school prayer think so. Coach Borden says he was bowing his head out of respect and not endorsing the student's prayer.
Marcus Borden who is a Spanish teacher and longtime football coach at East Brunswick High School in New Jersey persuaded a lower court last year that he did not violate separation of church and state laws. He simply bowed his head out of respect when a student began to lead prayer before a game.
The East Brunswick Board of Education appealed that ruling. They contend that Borden was endorsing religion with his actions of bowing his head, even though he never said a word. Separation of church and state is a political and legal doctrine which states that goverment and religous institutions are to be kept seperate and independent of each other.
