I kinda went off in this post. Seems a few things have changed since this morning.

Federal Court Lifts Ban on Public Prayer at Texas High School Graduation After Uproar
A federal appeals court has lifted the order banning public prayer at a Texas high school graduation Saturday.

The reversal comes on the heels of increasing criticism of a federal judge's earlier ruling that agreed with the parents of one graduating student that religious expression during the ceremony at Medina Valley Independent School District would cause "irreparable harm" to their son.
"This is a complete victory for religious freedom and for Angela," said Kelly Shackelford, president/CEO of Liberty Institute, which had represented class valedictorian Angela Hildenbrand in the appeal. "We are thrilled that she will be able to give her prayer without censorship in her valedictorian speech tomorrow night. No citizen has the right to ask the government to bind and gag the free speech of another citizen."
It's wonderful to see that there is still SOME common sense out there. It's not surprising that it's Texas that will not let ONE ruin the traditions and beliefs of MANY.
