In Santa Fe Texas high school football is a religion and so was a growing practice praying before games.
Lets bow our heads and give thanks to the Lord.
But the Supreme Court says allowing student led prayer before kick-off is out of bounds. Many legal experts, even clergy, agree. REV. BARRY LYNN, AMERICANS UNITED FOR SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE
They have just added another layer of bricks to make that wall of separation of church and state, higher.
The case involved Marian Ward -- a high school Senior who chose to lead a crowd in a pre-game prayer two years ago.
She was following school policy, which allowed students to say whatever they wanted before the game.
But the court said A PRAYER was inappropriate. Justice John Paul Stevens wrote: The policy is invalid because it unquestionably has the PURPOSE and creates the PERCEPTION of encouraging the delivery of prayers at a series of important school events.

The school district says the policy was meant to encourage free speech, not put God on the gridiron. DENISE HOWARD, SANTA FE SCHOOL DISTRICT: We feel like our students have been stepped on.
And they wonder what they will do if a student disagrees with Supreme Court. JOHN COUCH , SANTA FE SCHOOL BOARD There would just be no way that I would be involved in disciplining a student for their free speech rights. COWAN: The vote was not unanimous. In fact some of the Justices found the ruling too harsh. Chief Justice William Rehnquist worried the majoritys view bristled with hostility to ALL things religious in public life. Hostile or not, it is now the law. Lee Cowan, CBS News, Washington.))

An advocacy group for the poor claims nearly one million low income parents lost their Medicaid coverage and are probably uninsured due to the welfare overhaul.
A new study by Families USA examined Medicaid figures in the 15 states with the most uninsured low income population.
The group says 27 percent of adults with children have been dropped from the program from 1996 to 1999.
The study blames the states administering the programs.
It says they mismanaged the 1996 welfare reform law and improperly kicked people off of Medicaid after they left welfare rolls.
The principal researcher says welfare's supposed to help move people to jobs -- but he says once that happens, the people have too much income to get Medicaid.
