In Mississippi a federal judge says the Rankin County school district is in contempt of court continuing to promote Christianity during school hours.

U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves fined the district $7,500 and once again ordered the school district to stop sponsoring prayers at graduations, athletic competitions, assemblies, and other school events.

The Rankin County school district first got in trouble when a Northwest Rankin High School student sued over having to attend a school assembly that promoted Christianity.

Ironically the same student attended an honors assembly that was opened by a minister’s prayer.
