CAMDEN, N.J., June 7 (UPI) -- A pastor is suing a Camden, N.J., school district seeking to end the teaching of evolution and force the right to prayer in school.

The Rev. Eddie Torres filed the federal suit Monday after failing to persuade the city school board to place a referendum on the April ballot, the Camden (N.J.) Courier reported.

The newspaper said the city school district last year declined to put questions on the ballot regarding school prayer and a Bible-based curriculum. The school board claimed sole rights to determine curriculum, the newspaper said.
