School: We have a right to ban God

California school district says it will not apologize to a teenager who defied its orders and mentioned God in his graduation speech.

Attorneys representing the Brawley Union High School District have written a 10-page letter defending the school’s right not only to censor graduation speeches, but also to ban any speech that references God or Jesus.

“It is well established in the Ninth Circuit and California that a public school salutatorian has no constitutional right to lead a prayer or include sectarian or proselytizing content in his/her graduation speech,” reads a letter from the San Diego law firm of Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud and Romo. ...

The first article doesn't have too much to do with this thread, and there was a thread about it else where on SermonAudio, though this is updated, and considering it's source points out what it sees as problems Steve Green may run into,
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/17/us/politics/family-that-owns-hobby-lobby-plans-bible-museum-in-washington.html?partner=rss&emc=rss&_r=1 (Family Behind Hobby Lobby Has New Project: Bible Museum} .

Now this reference is something that counters the idea of what is in the thread, I doubt if this school is going to use Mr. Green's Bible history program. http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/religion/hobby-lobbys-green-family-postpones-launch-of-public-school-bible-curriculum/2014/07/16/5d4edd9e-0d30-11e4-bd4e-462c357f0998_story.html (Hobby Lobby’s Green family postpones launch of public school Bible curriculum)

No. The Salutatorian was not establishing a Congressionally supported religion as defined by the first amendment, in leading a prayer. But he does have the freedom of speech to do so, also as defined by the first amendment, let alone the freedom of religion to express his faith. No one was required to pray, thus no one else's rights could have been infringed.

The supreme court has ruled that a students 1st ammendment right does not end when the enter on school property...so this school board is trying to make up rules as they go.. to the pc crowd "if something offends you.. just walk away. Thats what being tollerant means....

As much as we can see how the school has fallen into the depths of depravity.. I was just wondering if we have a calling to submit and honour the decisions the school's authorities made. Anyone care to enlighten me?

If only the California school district knew how innocuous it would have been for Hamby to have given an invitation a la billy graham.I suppose the catholics would have benefited as they would have been directed to the local catholic reps who subsidize him. As well meaning as this fellow probably was, Christ didn't come to bring peace but a Sword.

I guess it will work both ways.. you ban God ( I guess he's not dead because you you can't ban a dead guy that would be redundant in less you are accknowledging him not to be dead) and then he can ban you from heaven.
