Well we're here on vacation and I've got quite a bee in my bonnet. We were watching the news when this story came on:
PACE, FL - There were a few suprises last night at Pace High School's Graduation.
After a federal court ruling banned school officials from promoting religion... Some graduates walked into the ceremony with crosses painted on their caps.Then, as Principal Frank Lay took the podium and asked students to be seated... A large group of students remained standing and recited the Lord's Prayer.
Principal Frank Lay, Pace: "Please be seated..."
Graduates: "Our father, who art in heaven hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven..."
The ACLU has been monitoring events at Pace High School.... Today, their attorney Benjamin Stevenson clarified their statement to Channel Three.
"Our feeling is that it's regrettable that the students took over the ceremony to impose their religious views on the audience who may not have shared the same religious views. School officials have a responsibility to protect the silently held religious views of others."
Stevenson went on to say he believes something should have been done to stop the Lord's Prayer at the ceremony. He said he'll be reviewing the case but it's too early to tell whether further legal action will be taken.Pace High School Graduation Protests.
And all I have to add to that is this- Keep on buzzing graduates, keep on buzzing!!!
