Here’s a somewhat “stale” story, but I thinks it’s worth visiting.  It was originally covered by World net Daily here.

Members of the graduating class of 2009 at Florida’s Pace High School have expressed their objections to ACLU restrictions on statements of religious faith at their school by rising up en masse at their ceremony and reciting the Lord’s Prayer.

The incident happened just days ago, but has been virtually ignored by media outlets throughout the region, according to officials with Liberty Counsel, a legal team representing Principal Frank Lay and teacher Michelle Winkler in their battle with the ACLU, which had complained that faculty and teachers were talking about their beliefs.

Resistance!  This is what we have needed!  People, in their everyday lives, are starting to openly resist the libtards!  It is also encouraging that it was kids doing the resistance.  Perhaps, at least in this case, the propaganda in the pubrik sckrools is not as strong as we think, and fear.

That the Legion of Doom ignored it is not a surprise.  They, being the biggest supporters of the messiah, would not want a “counter-revolutionary” attitude spreading among the sheeple, so stories like this get spiked fast.

Nearly 400 graduating seniors at Pace, a Santa Rosa County school, stood up at their graduation, according to Mathew Staver, president of Liberty Counsel.

Parents, family and friends joined in the recitation, and applauded the students when they were finished, Staver told WND.

“Many of the students also painted crosses on their graduation caps to make a statement of faith,” the organization reported.

Again, I applaud these kids and parents for taking steps to fight against the ACLU for attempting to ban their Constitutional rights!

As preparations were being made for the 2009 graduation, the ACLU demanded the school censor students from offering prayers or saying anything religious. As a result, two student leaders traditionally allowed by the school to address their graduation were banned from doing so.

Staver said class members, furious with the ACLU for hijacking their free speech rights, assembled the plan on their own. As soon as Lay asked everyone to be seated for the ceremony, the graduating seniors remained standing and recited the Lord’s Prayer.

What you going to do now ACLU; sue 400 kids for praying?  Sue all the parents and families for applauding?  We’re on to you.  We know what you stand for.  People are starting to fight back.  What if this starts to happen all over?  We know the Legion of Doom won’t cover it, but myself, others like me will, and it’s getting to the point that we have greater reach than the Legion, so do your worst!

Personally, I am impressed that 400 seniors at a public high school would so openly defy the authorities for their First Amendment rights.   Some rebellious teacher may have taught them what the Constitution actually means!  We always hear so much about how the kids are permanently brainwashed in the government schools.  This event shows that the kids can still see when their rights are being trampled.  Hopefully, they also start to see how the libtard agenda is harming them in other areas as well.

  • As you said, that 400 kids from a public school had the audacity to defy the ACLU…in the name of God…is an amazing thing…in fact…it’s a sign of real hope.

  • I honestly think that there’s enough Conservative messages out there that Cognitive Dissonance can still cause people to doubt the libs. I remember reading, right after 9-11, that many college kids got upset with their lefty profs when they did the whole “we had it coming” line regarding the attack. Then, you add this example. If you also consider the Tea Parties, which were NOT solely the creation of Republicans- There were quite a few Dems and Greenies at ours, you start to see a different picture.

    Socialism collapses in the presence of doubt. I have been convinced of this for years. The Soviet Union went down when the people stopped believing in it, or, at the least, their doubt overcame their fear of the state. That is why the libs want talk radio gone. It’s also why they talk about controlling the internet and kicking us off. That’s why they want Fox gone. That’s why they work so hard at indoctrinating the kiddos. They HAVE to silence dissent and eliminate doubt.

    Conservative messages are based in reality rather than fantasy, and can be verified by observation. If Limbaugh talks about the Porkulus failing, and a lib see’s that it is, the connection is made. The options are endless-the results are the same. We are correct, and it can be verified. If this keeps up, and Conservatives concentrate on getting the message out, they can win the midterms, and throw the messiah out in ’12.

  • Great job by those kids. Speaking of resistance, Chris Blake put a link to a petition you may be interested in–prompted by a letter to Glenn Beck. Also, that AGW Assclown James Hansen will be in our neck of the woods (sort of) on the 23rd.

  • I couldn’t be more impressed. The ACLU should take the word liberties out of their name because they certainly no longer embody the meaning, nor do they represent the foundation of the word.

  • @cbullitt-I’ll look into that. It’s a bit far for me, but I’ll track it.

    @LibertyPen- I was shocked and pleased. Maybe that rebellion gene in the American citizen hasn’t been cut out. I gives me hope.
