Question No. 2 — Pulling Plug On Christ References

Issue: District pulls plug on speech: Foothill valedictorian criticizes decision to censor her proclamation of faith/Las Vegas Review-Journal

More Info: "She knew her speech as valedictorian of Foothill High School would be cut short, but Brittany McComb was determined to tell her fellow graduates what was on her mind and in her heart. But before she could get to the word in her speech that meant the most to her -- Christ -- her microphone went dead. The decision to cut short McComb's commencement speech Thursday at The Orleans drew jeers from the nearly 400 graduates and their families that went on for several minutes."

DFO: I'm amazed at how anal retentive school districts and the ACLU are when it comes to Christian speech.

Question: Would you be offended if a high school senior used his/her valedictorian/salutatorian speech to mention his/her Christian faith?
