Reposted from Raw Story: A high school in central Mississippi allegedly forced students to watch a Christian video and listen to church officials preach about Jesus Christ.

The American Humanist Association's legal center filed a lawsuit against Northwest Rankin High School in Flowood on Wednesday, accusing the school of violating the student's First Amendment rights.
