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.
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.
