You've heard the story over and over. Supposedly a person is not allowed to mention the name of Christ in a Valedictory speech – they might offend someone! Well the Supreme Court of Montana says that we can indeed mention His name!
"Among Renee Griffith’s planned comments were such statements as: “I didn’t let fear keep me from sharing Christ and His joy with those around me” — and “I learned not to be known for my grades…but for being committed to my faith and morals and being someone who lived with a purpose from God with a passionate love for Him.” She was ordered by school officials to replace “Christ” with the words “my faith”; and to amend the other statement to say she “lived with a purpose, a purpose derived from my faith and based on a love of mankind.”
Here's my favorite quote from the piece: "The best thing Christians can do is to encourage their children to do well in school and to study apologetics." AMEN!
Pass it on…
Grace and Peace to you
