Keep God In Our Schools

From Stop The ACLU

"The senior class at a southern Kentucky high school gave their response Friday night to a federal judge’s order banning prayer at commencement."

It appears that a 17 year old Muslim student found that the incusion of prayer at a high school commencement program was offensive and used the ACLU to pick some jack booted thug wearing the robes of a federal magistrate to order an injunction against prayer being used during the ceremony.

"About 200 seniors stood during the principal’s opening remarks and began reciting the Lord’s Prayer, prompting a standing ovation from a standing-room only crowd at the Russell County High School gymnasium.

The thunderous applause drowned out the last part of the prayer."

This puts an exclamation point on how I feel about federal judges interjecting themselves into LOCAL events supported by LOCAL tax payers who want to conduct a LOCAL seremony as they see fit. No one is forced to pray to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Joseph or to Al-Gameia, the Shrub goddess. No one is forced to pray at all.

"The revival like atmosphere continued when senior Megan Chapman said in her opening remarks that God had guided her since childhood. Chapman was interrupted repeatedly by the cheering crowd as she urged her classmates to trust in God as they go through life.

The challenge made the graduation even better because it unified the senior class, Chapman said."

Indeed it did, as well as the entire crowd it appears. Except for the muslims *snicker*.

"The graduation took place about 12 hours after a federal judge blocked the inclusion of prayer as part of Russell County High School’s graduation ceremonies."

That was a great response to a judge who had no business forcing a centuries old custom to be treated as something illegal. And a great response to a muslim hypocrite who belongs to a religion that murders believers of other faiths if they don't convert or treats them like chattel.

Kentucky, you rock!
