Freedom of religion program under fire - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Freedom of religion program under fire

Good Friday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here hoping that your July 4th was fantastic and you're gearing up for a wonderful end of the work week.

*This morning we have a story out of Bossier Parish where a freedom of religion program has recently come under fire for voluntary prayer and the use of the word "God."  We take you to the event where a country star stood up for the cause, along with Gov. Bobby Jindal.

*We're awaiting word on a bond for the man arrested in a Lake Charles shooting.  We first showed you the video on Sunrise yesterday morning and will explain the details of the crime today.

*More than a dozen people were hurt in California after a 4th of July fireworks mishap.  Find out what happened at a fireworks show.

*This holiday weekend will bring more boaters to local waterways.  We'll tell you about a crackdown for DWIs and reckless operation.

*The rain is on the way!  Meteorologist Cedric Haynes is in for Ben today with a rainy weekend forecast.

Make it a Sunrise day!
