A religious liberty legal organization has urged the University of Colorado Boulder to uphold the free speech rights of its new football coach Deion Sanders amid a complaint from an atheist organization over his leading the team in prayer.

First Liberty Institute sent a letter to the university and its leadership Tuesday to correct what it characterized as “Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) ‘s misstatements regarding the requirements imposed by the First Amendment on public school employees’ religious expression.”

The letter follows a Jan. 24 complaint from FFRF, a Wisconsin-based secularist legal group that advocates for a strict separation of church and state, over what the organization described as Sanders engaging in “school-sponsored proselytizing.” (Excerpt from The Christian Post.)
