Finaly someone gets it right
It's about time
(AgapePress) - A valedictorian at one Wisconsin high school did not have to hide her faith in Christ when it came to her recent graduation speech.
When Miriam Cattanach, valedictorian of the Class of 2005 of Spencer High School, submitted her graduation speech to school officials, they said any reference to religion, God, or Jesus must go. Miriam, a committed Christian, said in her speech that Christ is the hope for the future. But when administrators censored her speech, her family contacted Liberty Counsel in Florida.
After the legal group got involved, the school changed its tune, says Liberty Counsel (LC) president Mat Staver. "We wrote a letter to the school authorities and talked to them about what the Constitution says. We simply said that if they insist on censoring this religious message of her graduation speech, that it would be unconstitutional -- and we would have to file suit in court," Staver reports. "After considering this, they changed their mind."
It's only a shame it took a lawyer.
