The third annual voluntary event was condemned by an athiest group out of Wisconsin
because it was originally posted on the school district’s website and facebook page.
However social media is also helping the event rally support. One facebook page called “Stand with Cullman on prayer in schools” has received more than five thousand “likes” and FB is reporting about 7,000 comments according to the creator Brent Mcdonald.
The non-school sponsored prayer caravan consists of 10 to 15 minutes of prayer in front of each county school.
The freedom from Religion Foundation wants the event canceled, claiming it’s unconstitutional..
Cullman County Pastor Steve Bryan says “In Cullman County we’re not afraid of bullies. We’ve been bullied about things before. We’re not always right … but we hold to our conviction and we stand on that rock.”
Mcdonald says this campaign is about fighting a spiritual battle and will ultimately generate the biggest prayer caravan they’ve ever had before.
A prayer rally is scheduled following the caravan at the Cullman County Fairgrounds on Saturday.
it runs from 6 until 8 pm.
