Within hours of the middle school in Jefferson, SC permitting students to choose the optional event in the gym where the rapper B-SHOC performed, atheists from across the nation descended on the small school demanding an investigation of this corrupting of the children's minds.

-- From "Christian Prayer Rally Improperly Held At Public School" by Susanne M. Schafer, Associated Press 9/22/11
Annie Laurie Gaylor with the 17,000-member [Freedom from Religion] Foundation said the rally that Thursday featuring the rapper B-SHOC and a youth evangelist, Christian Chapman, was held at New Heights Middle School in the town of about 700 near the state line with North Carolina. She said in a phone interview that her organization sent a letter of complaint to the school district seeking an investigation and a halt to such activity.
The American Civil Liberties Union of South Carolina issued a statement that "a serious constitutional violation" occurred.
The school's Facebook page deleted its link to the video of the event, but comments in support of the principal were posted on it, with the comment, "Keep standing up for what you believe, and never let them knock you down. Keep it up! We love you."
Rodney Nicholson, pastor of High Point Baptist Church in nearby Pageland, S.C., posted on the school's Facebook page . . . "Those who did not wish to attend had an alternative option! There is something wrong when you can talk about sex, drugs, pregnancy, and any other subject in school except for Christianity!" Nicholson wrote.
