Lawyer Defends School Room Use by Christian Group

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas school district is defending its provision of a high school room for meetings by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Americans United for Separation of Church and State wants the Fountain Lake School District to take down a plaque that says the FCA meets in the room and ensure that secular groups can use the room too.

An attorney for the school district says, "Other school organizations can meet there if they want to."

Americans United is arguing that the room at the high school was
built for the FCA, which could suggest that the school promotes
Christianity.
