This recently happened at the graduation ceremony at a high school near my home town as reported by Human Events.
Way to go Class of 2009. Let your actions speak loudly to the ACLU that you cannot be stopped in your words of faith.
Despite threats from the ACLU, 400 students in Florida broke protocol during a graduation ceremony.
During a recent graduation ceremony at Pace High School in Santa Rosa County, Florida, nearly 400 graduating seniors stood and recited the Lord's Prayer. The American Civil Liberties Union had previously filed a lawsuit against the school because they alleged that the principal asked the athletic director to bless a meal at an awards ceremony. The graduation prayer was recited in protest of the lawsuit.
Matt Staver of Liberty Counsel says many of the students were upset over the attack on free speech by the ACLU. "The ACLU had actually threatened the school that they would be in trouble with the court if any student or any kind of religious message was given at this particular graduation. They did not want any student to say anything religious, or no prayer," he explains. "The students would not take this sitting down, and they decided to fight back." The ACLU contends that something should have been done to stop the students from reciting the Lord's Prayer. Staver says his organization will defend any students if action is taken against them.
Liberty counsel is currently defending the principal in regards to the previous lawsuit.
In my own thoughts this was a great way to stand up and rebuke the ACLU. I would imagine this action represented the vast majority of the students graduation class at Pace High School.
Actually what right does the ACLU have going on school property and dictate to the students what they can and cannot do? The majority ruled this day and the ACLU was over ruled. I would imagine the ACLU will probably spend thousands of the tax payers money to track every student down and sue them for expressing their God given right to freedom of speech and religion.
It is high time we as Americans stand up to these so called speaking for America groups and let our voice be heard loud and clear.
