    Kentucky Graduates Defy Liberal Judge

    Last Friday 200 graduating high school students basically sent a message to the ACLU and the liberal judge that tried to control the content of their graduation ceremony: Shove Your Anti-Christianity Agenda Up Your Ass!

    The account is from the Agape Press article 200 Graduates Defy Judge's Ban on Commencement Ceremony Prayer:
    A Kentucky school superintendent says he's proud of the Russell County High School students who recited the Lord's Prayer at Friday's graduation ceremony.

    Earlier in the day, a federal judge had banned prayers from the ceremony in response to a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union. But during the principal's opening remarks, about 200 students prayed aloud, drawing thunderous applause and a standing ovation from the crowd.
    The ACLU attempt to attack the free speech rights of the students was initiated because - yep, you guessed it - a Muslim student, Arshiya Saiyed, that was on the planning committee.
    "Terms like Jesus Christ, heavenly father, I talked about the fact I was Muslim and the prayers in the past were offensive to me," the 17-year-old said.

    Saiyed claimed that almost immediately after objecting to the prayer, she was harassed by a group of students. One student told her he wanted her out of the country, she related to WHAS.
    Well you know what Ms. Saiyed? Your attempts to force your beliefs by obstructing the free speech rights of Americans are offensive to me - and millions of other Americans. America was founded on Christian principles - not Muslim. You're free to believe and practice what you wish - but don't try remove Christianity from the USA.
