Imagine working Very hard throughout your High School days to be the smartest in your class and then when your moment that you earned comes to speak on your accomplishment your High School won’t allow speak you to give the speech you wrote!!
That is what happened to Sam Blackledge, who maintained a 4.0 grade-point average during his academic career at West Prairie High School, He wanted to give thanks to his inspiration Jesus Christ. He wanted humble himself and be thankful to his hero that he believes in.
Fox news reported: Todd Starnes: Jesus banned — School censors valedictorian’s religious speech “They said they didn’t want to make it a religious ceremony,” Sam on the “Todd Starnes Radio Show.” “They told me that if I took out Christ I could say everything else.”
Does he not have the right to Free speech. He earned his moment in the spotlight!! Schools will not allow the name Jesus Christ to be spoken in their buildings now? This indoctrination of our youth has to stop!! 80% of Americans identify as Christians yet can not utter His name in a school? They sure have no problem pushing perversion in schools,
I ask is this the America you want? Is this what America now stands for? Is this what we want our High Schools to teach our youth? This is not Free Speech and nor should it be accepted by a Free society. He did not have a sermon prepared. He just wanted to honor HIS HERO!!~RJH
