Rankin County School District (RCSD) fined $7,500 for allowing pastor to pray at school

Not long after a local pastor began a districtwide honors assembly with a prayer invocation, the United States Federal District Court ruled against the Rankin County School District (RCSD), issuing it a fine for allegedly violating a 2013 court settlement ordering the district to stop “proselytizing Christianity.”
U.S.  District Judge Carlton Reeves reminded the district that it is a repeat offender. He is the same judge who previously banned Bibles from being distributed on all RCSD campuses. This marks the second time he has ordered the district to cease from permitting prayer at school events.
