Cullman County, AL (WAFF) -

A "prayer caravan" that sparked intense debate and national attention, is now getting support through social media.

Nearly 6,000 people have taken their opinions about the prayer caravan to the web, showing their support for Cullman County's superintendent who isn't backing down after allegations from the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

The facebook group "Stand with Cullman on Prayer for Schools" said they're planning a prayer rally after the caravan at the Cullman County fairgrounds at 6 p.m. Saturday.

Superintendent, Billy Coleman has come out and dismissed complaints from the FFRF that he violated the constitution with separation of church and state by organizing a prayer caravan. The caravan is a group of people, including the superintendent, that go to every school in the system and pray for the children.

Coleman said in a news conference on Tuesday, that he has no plans of canceling the caravan and is already getting legal advice that he isn't breaking any laws.
