Update: The Lord’s Prayer Was Said at Russell County High School GraduationMay 23, 2006 at 1:04 am | Posted in Christians Hijacking Graduations | Leave a comment
After a federal judge banned prayer at Russell County’s High School Graduation, the students prayed. While their principal was speaking at the beginning of the ceremony, about 200 seniors stood and recited The Lord’s Prayer. Then they received a standing ovation from the crowd. A female student also stated to the crowd that her god had guided her all her life. I saw this story on the local news last night on WLEX 18. They interview a couple of students and they were so proud of themselves. I think that those 200 students and the crowd that applauded them should be ashamed. They broke the law and they do not care. What about the students who don’t believe. We know that there is at least one student at that school who does not believe. It seems that some people did not understand where they were that night. Russell County High School is a public school, which is funded by the state. Did these people think they were at a private school or at church or something. I am sorry to have to report such sad news. I live in the bible belt, so what can I say. I must say again that the student who didn’t want a prayer at his graduation was a hero. I am sorry that things didn’t work out the way he wanted, the way things are supposed to be. For those who have forgotten, church and state are separate.
