Liberals have been attacking the Christian faith for decades, trying to silence our most devoted followers from expressing their love for God and Jesus.
A high school student from Beaver High School in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, was recently told not to talk about Jesus in her graduation speech.
Moriah Bridges was told to “remove all religious references” from her commencement address, including the words “God,” “Lord,” and “Jesus.”
Bridges ignored the school’s administration and proceeded to praise Jesus in the most beautiful way possible.
“I’ve always been a rule follower,” Bridges stated at the end of her speech. “When they said not to chew gum, I didn’t chew gum. When they said not to use your cellphone, I didn’t use my cellphone. But today, in the spirit of defying expectations, and for perhaps the last time at this podium, I say, ‘in the righteous name of Jesus Christ, Amen.’”
Not surprisingly, the crowd cheered her on.
Conservative Tribune reports:
WTAE noted that Bridges is now being represented by “First Liberty,” a religious freedom law firm, which is demanding a meeting with school administration officials to change school policy.
The Beaver Area School District Superintendent, Carrie Rowe, released a statement on June 13th where he defended the actions of the administration.
“In Moriah’s case, the district could not approve a speech written as a prayer, but did approve a second version that she submitted,” Rowe explained in the statement. “As superintendent, I took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States and of this commonwealth.”
School officials were shocked by her statement and it took them nearly 11 days to respond to what she did.
