School: You may not recite prayer in the name of Jesus Christ

Moriah Bridges wanted to thank God for His immeasurable blessings on Beaver High School’s graduating class. But she could not, because it was against the law.

The Pennsylvania teenager wanted to offer thanksgiving to the Almighty for parents and coaches and teachers. But again, she could not, because it was against the law.

“Make us selfless. Make us just. Make us successful people, but more than that, make us good people,” Moriah wanted to pray. But that too, was determined to be unlawful.

This is the America – the land of the free, the home of the brave. But it is also a place where a young teenager girl is not permitted to mention the name of Jesus Christ or anything remotely religious in a graduation speech at a public high school. ...

You have a point John Y.,

Matthew 6:5 “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 6 But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.---ESV

Thanks for bringing it up.

Yes. she should have went to a Christian or at least private school that allows such religious prayers. The who graduation ceremony could have been interrupted by people who wanted to thank Buddha or Allah, etc.

If I was that girl I would have told those school officials "Now look here jerks. The First Amendment Freed of Religion guarantees that I have the right to pray in the name of Jesus in public. I will pray in the name of Jesus at the Commencement Exercises and there is nothing you can do about it.".

Mikey Weinstein is leap frogging over student led prayer and sending letters to school district lawyers, telling them to stop student led prayer or face a lawsuit. At the same time the dispensable left is supporting killing the father of an 11 year old boy and if that doesn't pale, the God wrath bound left also makes jokes the Barron Trump has autism. If someone joked to my face about killing my dad, or insinuated my son was had autism, I'd go all Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall " Jackson on them.

""In short, school officials – in violation of the First Amendment – forced Moriah to censor her personal remarks during the closing exercise""

Violating the Constitution is not what schools should be teaching children. But the politically Correct Liberalism running many in society, really does not care much about morals and laws.

2Cor 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."

What were they going to do? Make a scene at the graduation by pulling her down from the platform, or telling her loudly to shut up? I think not.
This is completely illegal and according to your US Constitution, totally unconstitutional.
Besides these petty atheistic bureaucrats would not dare to have interrupted a Muslim student or censored his or her speech praising their false god, as they know jolly well what would have been be result!!
Atheistic Secular Humanism and Islam have now illegally become the 2 state religions of the USA!!! This is contrary to the Constitution.
Dan3:16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.
17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

"..see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God."
V25b
