Secular group demands Deion Sanders stop religious exercises with Colorado players’

A secular group is demanding the University of Colorado censor “religious exercises” that football coach Deion Sanders may intend for the team. The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) claims that Sanders has been engaging in “inappropriate and unconstitutional actions” by “engaging in religious exercises with players and staff members” in a letter sent to the University of Colorado Boulder Chancellor, Phill DiStefano. The letter goes on to state that “on December 20, 2022, a staff member led other staff members in a Christian prayer to start an official meeting” and “more egregiously, on January 16, 2023, Coach Sanders directed a staff member to lead players and coaches in Christian prayer before a team meeting.” The letter continued by citing numerous legal precedents, including the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that forbids such religious exercises in education environments, and suggests student-athletes would feel compelled to participate even if it goes against their beliefs.
