Before Cassidy addressed the crowd and took questions, Louisiana State chaplain Dr. Michael Sprague announced that he would begin the prayer. As soon as he said “prayer” the crowd erupted.

Several people could be heard yelling, “Prayer? Prayer?” while other people yelled, “Separation of church and state.”

Another person added, “Pray on your own time. This is our time.”

The crowd did not let up with the heckling following the opening prayer, and continued to yell as a local veteran took the microphone to lead the Pledge of Allegiance.

Dozens of people did not stand for the Pledge. Instead, many of them sat down and continued to yell at Cassidy….
