Traditional Christian prayer before football games has been banned in 18 schools across the US following a complaint.

The student-led prayer, which has been a long-standing tradition in American schools, has now been scrapped due to a complaint from an organization outside of the Christian community, according to Christian persecution watchdog International Christian Concern (ICC).

Superintendent Rodney Green explained after the Alabama-based cluster of 18 schools discussed options with layers after the anonymous complaint, they decided to forbid prayer and do a moment’s silence instead.
