Joshua High School officials didn’t just act like a school bully when they turned off a valedictorian’s speech after the speaker mentioned Jesus. They also violated Texas law and the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Fox News’ Todd Starnes reported that when a Christian valedictorian at Joshua High School referenced his faith in his graduation speech, school officials literally turned the microphone off. The valedictorian has been accepted to the U.S. Naval Academy to become an officer, and Principal Mick Cochran threatened to write a letter to the Navy saying that this young man is of poor character, attempting to persuade the Navy to refuse allowing this talented student to attend.

This is wrong on just so many levels. Let’s see if I can point out a few.
Gooferment Skrules — wrong on so many levels.
Valedictorian — agreeing to a set of conditions and then breaking them.
Skrule bureaucrats — redlining speeches. (Guess they have never heard of prior restraint?)
Principal — what a pal; threatening a little kid. (Yeah, if you can’t have sex with them figure out other ways to <synonym for the act of procreation> with their lives.
Christian — going into the military? (Guess he’s got a different interpretation of ‘blessed are the peacemakers’!)
The Navy — why do you want a trouble maker? (Think you can change him?)
Attorney General for the State of Texas — hey, there’s laws being broken! get a posse a go fix it. Or send a Texas Ranger.
Attorney General for the USA — Hey, you remember the First Amendment? Get on it. (Yeah, with the various -gates going on in the District of Corruption, this is chump change.)
Move along all you Sheeple; nothing to see here.
