Hines: No Prayers, Hymns at Houston Graduations This Year

STORY HIGHLIGHTS:

- Last year, a group of religious skeptics challenged the practice of public prayer at Houston County's graduations.

- Houston County superintendent Robin Hines says there will be no school-sponsored prayers this year.

- The Freedom from Religion Foundation says it represented eight Houston County families in their complaint.

Houston County's school superintendent says the programs for this year's graduations won't feature any prayers or hymns, due to complaints about last year's.

Robin Hines said the district won't sponsor any prayers or hymns. Music at the events will be "inspirational" but not religious.

He said the district doesn't want to break the law.
