In Oklahoma a 15 year old girl was kicked off her basketball team for refusing to pray with the team. When the atheist family inquired into what had happened they were met with lies, threats, violence and legal charges stemming from an altercation between the father and the girl's principal.
On June 22, 2006 a jury found the atheist not guilty on all counts.
Some prospective jurors did not know what an atheist was. Others admitted they could not believe an atheist over a Christian. Such jurors were dismissed, but eventually 12 jurors were selected and a verdict favorable to the atheist was rendered.
The night the verdict was presented, a tornado struck the home of the school principal, who had lied under oath.
