Despite objections, prayer goes on at Lincoln graduation
Despite the opposition of at least six students, Lincoln County High School kept to its tradition of student-led prayer during its graduation ceremony Friday.
Class of 2013 President Jonathan Hardwick received a standing ovation after he prayed for about one minute during Friday‚Äôs commencement ceremony at the school. Many audience members echoed his closing of ‚ÄúAmen.‚ÄĚ
A video of Hardwick‚Äôs prayer quickly hit social media websites such as YouTube and Topix, with most online comments supporting Hardwick‚Äôs decision.
Part of the class president‚Äôs prayer was the following, ‚ÄúThank you for helping us get here safely today, Lord, and thank you for the many blessings you have given us.‚ÄĚ...
It is good to see that more Americans are waking up to the lies of leftists that the first amendment was established to make the public square a "religion-free" zone. That was not the intention of the founding fathers when they prohibited Congress from making any law "establishing religion." They simply wanted to prevent the United States from having an officially sanctioned state church-- not to limit the free expression of religious faith in the public square. That's why they added that Congress shall make no law "prohibiting the free exercise" of religion. We need to take a strong and unyielding stand against all efforts by leftist, Marxist politicians and lawyers to turn the public square in America into a "religion-free zone." That is an intolerable assault on the freedoms guaranteed to all Americans by the Bill of Rights.

Praise the Lord Jesus Christ for Hardwick and for that school district for not acquiesing(I believe that is the way this word is spelled) to those 6 stupid and insane students who were against prayers at graduation.
