The ACLU sued a school district in Florida … where the athletic director and a principal have been actually jailed for saying grace over a meal* … and the school gave into their usual demand that every expression of Christian faith be prohibited and stigmatized, including barring openly Christian students from even speaking at school events.
[T]he district also agreed (to the ACLU’s demand) 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…
In other words, if you are a Christian, the ACLU is officially on board with prohibiting you from speaking your mind before you even have a chance to open your mouth. Just being a Christian is enough justification to have your free speech rights taken away, according to the ACLU.
What do you think would happen to a Muslim, a Pagan, or a Jew that said a prayer at a school event? Absolutely freaking nothing, that’s what would happen. The school district might even win an award for ‘encouraging diversity and tolerance.’
