Freedom of Speech? Not If You Are a Christian

School prayer charges stir protests
Educators face jail in Florida

That headline got my attention, but what both grips and gripes me, is what is going on here. A high school principle and athletic director face trial and prison, for having had the audacity to offer a prayer on school premises.

Their school board having previously reached some egregious judicial consent decree arising out of yet another ACLU law suit to stifle Christianity at every opportunity.

And if that is not bad enough? Have a look at this last paragraph of the article.

Mr. Staver said the district also agreed to forbid senior class President Mary Allen from speaking at the school's May 30 graduation ceremony on the chance that the young woman, a known Christian, might say something religious.

"She was the first student body president in 33 years not allowed to speak," he said.

What's wrong with this country? Does anyone really have to ask that stupid and rhetorical question.
