Students Are Told They Can’t Recite The Lord’s Prayer, They React In A Way That’ll Make You Proud


All over the country, Americans are showing their defiance regarding religious expression.

A group of graduating seniors from East Liverpool Ohio were infuriated that the Lord’s Prayer was not allowed during their graduation ceremony. In true teenage fashion, they decided to rebel against this anti-Christian ruling. The entire graduating class belted out the Lord’s Prayer in a song rendition in the ultimate defiance.

Currently, the country is experiencing a divide regarding what religious options are allowed openly. Islam say’s it’s under attack and Democrats are right there defending them. In reality, it’s Christianity that is under attack through the claim of fairness. How is it fair to suppress Christianity in order to allow other religions to flourish? That is being prejudiced towards Christianity. Meanwhile, Muslims claim to be the victims of prejudice and they are winning by having Christianity silenced because it offends them.

Although atheists and liberal groups keep cracking down on Christianity in schools, these students decided to go forward with a tradition that has been in practice for more than 70-years at their graduating ceremony. And liberals and anti-Christian groups were outraged.

Because of the heat and legal threats, the high school officials nixed the song from the ceremony. The Freedom from Religion Foundation said the song promoted religion and violated the U.S. Constitution’s derivative for the separation of church and state America was founded on.

“It was a decision made because we don’t have a lot of money and we’d rather hire teachers than pay lawyers,” school board president Larry Walton told a local NBC News affiliate.

The graduating seniors were not happy about that. They wanted to sing the prayer as their fathers and grandfathers had done before them.

Just after the class valedictorian welcomed everyone to the graduation ceremony, the students rose up in their seats and began the prayer with “Our Father who art in heaven.”

If Muslims can have their own private prayer rooms in colleges then seniors can recite the Lord’s Prayer if they want to.

    The Muslin supporting teachers should have to move to a muslin country. Our Constitution is based on Judo/Christian law and muslin sheria law is NOT compatiable.

    The author of the article is unclear on the concept of separation of church and state—cheering what he supposes is defiance of an anti-Christian decision. The issue is not—repeat NOT—about the PRAYER or who or how many favor it. All the rah-rah hooray-for-our-side hooting about that is just so much noise. Rather the issue is about the GOVERNMENT, in the form of the public school, weighing in to promote religion by organizing a prayer. Under our Constitution, our government has no business doing that–REGARDLESS of whether anyone is offended and REGARDLESS of how many or few favor or disfavor the particular prayer. While this is primarily a constitutional point, it is one that conservatives–small government conservatives–should appreciate from a political standpoint as well.

    It is important to distinguish between “individual” and “government” speech about religion since the Constitution protects the former and constrains the latter. The First Amendment’s “free exercise” clause assures that each individual is free to exercise and express his or her religious views–publicly as well as privately. The Amendment’s “establishment” clause constrains only the government not to promote or otherwise take steps toward establishment of religion.

    Here, upon being apprised of its mistake, the school rightly discontinued its practice of
    organizing a prayer at its graduation ceremony. So far, so good.

    What the students did as individuals is an entirely different matter. The students generally were free to pray on their own as long as they did not disrupt the school’s program. There was no “anti-Christian ruling” that they defied by acting as individuals to pray. (Whether their actions amounted to disrupting the school’s graduation program is another question.)
