Spectrum Volume 20 Issue 15 - December 11, 1997

At half-time of the men's basketball game on Friday, Nov. 21, a singing group performed religious songs. While I was not personally offended by the content or tone of the performance, nevertheless I believe this kind of activity violates the First Amendment prohibition against establishment of religion, because the game is a state-supported activity and the music was not designed for explicitly educational purposes. Do any other Spectrum readers have an opinion about this?
