As reported yesterday, school officials at Beaver High School in Pennsylvania forbade their valedictorian to say “in the name of Jesus Christ” in her graduation speech. And she said it anyway.
Now what? That’s what I want to know. They, the leftist cretins who run the school, say “It’s against the law!” (what law?) to invoke the name of Jesus Christ anywhere but in church or at home. So what are you guys gonna do about this kid who broke “the law”? Like, her high school days are over–you can’t give her detention, or make her write on the blackboard “I will not mention Jesus Christ” a hundred times.
Besides which, the assembled community at the graduation ceremony, by their long ovation for the girl, made it very clear whose side they were on.
So what are they going to do? Have the police arrest her for “breaking the law”? That’d go over big. Uh, contact the college she’s signed up to go to, and try to get them to kick her out? Or they could change the whole graduation format, and just not allow any more student speeches. That way they wouldn’t have to worry about anyone ever speaking the name of Jesus.
Why do school officials act like the devil in The Exorcist?
See, I’m betting these people, and all who are like them, wouldn’t dare do anything but back down if society stood up to them–as this one girl, by herself, stood up to the Christophobes at Beaver High. There are so vastly more of us than there are of them, I’m betting they’ll fold like cheap cameras if we all stand up to them. Let’s just see if they dare more than that. Let’s see!
Our God is an awesome God, and He will bless us if we stand tall for His Son.
