The town of Lenoir City, Tenn., is suspending prayers before school meetings and football games, CBN News reports. The Lenoir City school board made the decision after receiving complaints from three different groups -- Americans United, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Appignani Humanist Legal Center -- who claimed prayers at school functions were unconstitutional. School superintendent Wayne Miller said a long-term decision about the prayers would be made after the school system consulted its attorney.
