First Amendment controversy brews over Texas high school's prayer room

A Texas high school's on-site prayer room -- which serves as a spot where Muslim students can pray -- is stirring controversy.

Liberty High School in Frisco established the room in 2009, but Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is concerned that the room may be off-limits to students of other religious denominations.

He said in a letter Friday to the school district that any exclusion would be inconsistent with the First Amendment’s protection of religious liberty.

A school district spokesman responded that the classroom is available to “students of all walks of life” in the afternoon when it is vacant.
