Supreme Court Case
A state's law creating a moment of silence in the public schools is ruled unconstitutional since it did endorse a type of prayer. Students should be left to their own devices during the moment of silence and not forced into prayer.
In this court case during the moment of silence they were trying to force religion on people by telling them to pray during the moment of silence.
This act may go against some peoples religion because their being asked to pray during the moment of silence.
