Young Marines Win Fight to Keep God in Prayer

A Young Marines program in Louisiana is getting attention after refusing to back down over a prayer.
The Shreveport Times of Shreveport, La., reports that the Bossier, La., Young Marines program lost at least $15,000 worth of federal funding because of a voluntary prayer program cadets can recite.

The decade-long institution of praying during program meetings has never been questioned or criticized, staff said, but a random audit of the program called its federal funding into question.
