BACKLASH: Football Fans Tackle Atheist Group Trying to Blitz Pre-Game Prayers [+video]

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, which seems to rear its ugly head any time someone mentions God, alleges that the University of Toledo head football coach Matt Campbell violated the Constitution by leading his team in a prayer before a Sept. 15, 2012 game against Bowling Green State University, according to the Toledo Blade.

To get an idea of just how ridiculous the foundation’s case is this time, it didn’t write to University of Toledo President Dr. Sharon L. Gaber until May 21, 2015, after it was contacted by an alumnus who watched a video of the prayer titled “All Access: Toledo Rockets Pre-Game” taking place on YouTube.

In the letter, the foundation claims the prayer was “a serious and flagrant violation of the First Amendment” and it is “afraid it still continues” as Campbell is still the head coach of the team . . .

On the Blade article’s comment section many fans expressed anger over the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s latest contrived controversy.

    If athiests think that by shutting our prayer they an shut out God, they are in for a surprise. There is coming a day if we allow this to happen when God will say enough.

    They should of been asked how an individual violated the first Amendment when it states that Govrenment shall not promote any one religion, not an individual whom is protected under such Amendment to express his beliefs.
