High School Valedictorian Stuns Audience After He Rips Up Speech and Delivers the Lord’s Prayer Instead — Wild Applause Follows
Roy Costner IV, a former public school student from South Carolina, stunned the audience at his high school graduation last weekend when he ripped up his previously-approved valedictorian speech, going on, instead, to speak about God — and then deliver the Lord’s prayer.

The act, which drew loud applause, was taken in opposition to the School District of Pickens County’s decision to axe prayers from graduation events, Christian News reports. Officials said that they had recently received complaints from atheist activists and church-state separatists, leading to the removal of invocations from all school events.

But that didn’t stop Costner. As he spoke, Costner went from merely mentioning “the Lord” to jumping right into the well-known prayer. ...

Yes, John Y., when did it become "none of his business" of a religious leader, when one of his congregants is a hypocrite It is his business and as such your wrong to be there.

Oh, these students make it clear they aren't Catholic. Catholics corrupting Communists Catholic Schools in U.S. Court China’s Youth, and Their Cash.

I never stated I refuse to associate with Christians. When did I ever state that? I meant what I stated that if I was Costner IV and not shy to communicate before an audience I would have done what Costner IV did. It is true that I don't make my priest cognizant of my beliefs but that is because it is none of his business what my beliefs are. Even if I were to attend an Evangelical Protestant Church I would not discuss anything with the minister because it would not be any of his business what my beliefs are. I would not engage in verbal communication with anybody and I would not be involved in any church actities if I were to attend an Evangelical Protestant Church.

No, you wouldn't John Y.,
Mike Gendron wrote:
All Protestant and Roman Catholic Churches together make up the “professing” Church. The “true” church is only a small part of the “professing” church, which includes both born again believers and mere professors of Christ. Jesus called believers “the wheat” and mere professors, who are sons of the evil one, “the tares” (Mt. 13:24-30, 36-43). Unless the tares experience the second birth, they will one day be deathly horrified when they hear Jesus declare from His Great White Throne: “I never knew you, depart from Me” (Mat. 7:23).
excerpt from, Is the One True Church Roman Catholicism?

You refuse to associate with Christians Hebrews 10:24-26, and if your priest disapproved, you would remain silent about the truth, which you do in your parish now.

Praise the Lord Jesus Christ that Costner IV spoke about God and delivered the Lord's Prayer. I would have done the same thing.

Ah, the things they teach Carholic girls parochial school home ec. Piux X Stabbing Suspect Pleads Not Guilty and hot off the presses, Neb. woman gets jail time for nude photo stunt, she made her $75 bail. Now, you know why Billy Clinton a parochial school graduate turned out like he did.

Ah, but meanwhile if you really want you children to get a down to earth education -- you send them to parochial school! Here are some latest happenings by students or graduates of Lincoln's largest parochial school. Lincoln Pius X Student Arrested for Bomb Threat and Local P**n Star Strips Down Outside of Pius X High School (apparently you'll have to access that story at yourself. It was their cover(ed) story. )
Emmett McLoughlin in his book wrote:
Morally, this book will show the high rate of crime and sin among Roman Catholics everywhere, and particularly in the United States. It will also demonstrate that this immorality is not in spite of Catholic education and training, but directly because of it.
excerpt from, Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No. (PDF)

Now, if you want your son to become President of the U.S., you send him to parochial school like Billy Clinton's mother did, of course he was lacking in the morality department, no big deal for Catholics or politicians.

I ran across this video last night after watching that woman send her two pitbulls after a news reporter. Stupid.
Anyway, yes, great for him and I admire his courage. Won't change anything or anyone, but I was happy to hear a Christian get a word in enmasse for a change.

Absolutely correct. Praise and Glory to our Lord Jesus Christ. Lord Jesus Christ send thy blessing upon Costner IV. Now and ever and unto the ages of ages(The Eastern Orthodox end their prayers with this).
