    NH Union Leader: On the other side, the Alliance Defending Freedom will continue to stand by Urena, who has been represented by the Scottsdale, Ariz., group since it learned of Urena’s ban. “This is definitely progress and is really what we’ve sought all along — to allow Liza to continue to pray for the students and the school,” said Matt Sharp, legal counsel for the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based alliance. “The fact that she’s able to be there and pray is the most important thing. We really applaud the district for this step.” . . . Sharp said whether it’s out loud or silent, Urena feels she is getting her message out without disrupting anything or attempting to influence students in their own religious beliefs. “All she wanted to do was to be able to continue to do that,” Sharp said. “If somebody doesn’t like Liza praying, they can just keep walking right into the school.”

Mom’s School Prayers Stir Legal Fight in N.H. | Concord Monitor

    Concord Monitor: The Alliance Defending Freedom will provide legal services to Lizarda Urena of Concord to challenge the Concord School District’s decision to disallow her from praying on school property . . . Matthew Sharp, general counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, said yesterday the group has not filed a lawsuit and is still determining how to move forward. The group provides all legal services pro bono.
    “We think the facts in this one really matter,” Sharp said. “She was (praying) passively. I think she was providing a great example there of just a mother that is passionate about wanting what’s best for her kids.” Sharp argues that Urena’s speech is protected under the First Amendment and that the Freedom from Religion Foundation’s assertion that her praying violates the separation of church and state is “blatantly false.” “It’s the private speech of a parent, not the endorsed speech of the school,” he said.

    Patheos: Of course, a Religious Right group is arguing that this is a violation of the mother’s rights: [Says Matthew Sharp, general counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom,] “The students know it’s the mother and her own speech — something that the First Amendment protects — and that it is not the school mandating this woman to do it.” . . . Sharp of the pro-prayer Alliance Defending Freedom says the group hasn’t decided whether to take up Urena’s cause. “What this mother is doing is carrying on one of the great American traditions,” he said. I reiterate my earlier point: If the mother were preaching any faith other than Christianity, I doubt Sharp would be defending her . . .
