ACLU Threatens Students Over Religious Expression

During the graduation ceremony at Pace High School in Santa Rosa County, Florida, nearly 400 graduating seniors stood and recited the Lord's Prayer. Many of them also painted a cross on their graduation cap as a statement of faith.

The ACLU had previously filed a lawsuit against the school, alleging that the principle had asked the athletic director to bless a meal at an awards ceremony.

The ACLU had threatened the school that they would take legal action if any kind of religious message was given at this particular graduation.

Matt Staver, of Liberty Council, is representing the principle, Frank Lay and teacher Michelle Winkler.

He says he will also represent the students if necessary.

Lord, bless the children.

Follow up point of interest to yesterday's blog: After President Obama's all out endorsement of the homosexual lifestyle, declaring the entire month of June "Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender Pride Month," the homosexual activists are now expressing frustration with him for not moving fast enough and omitting repeal of DOMA and the military, "Don't ask don't tell" policy in his proclamation. I have linked a story from POLITICO that is very informative. Note the pictures of activists with signs calling Obama "Fraud" and "Fail".
