Mention God? Don't you dare

Brittany McComb, valedictorian of Foothill High School in Clark County, Nevada, stood up at her graduation and began to speak. A few paragraphs into her speech, school administrators cut off McComb's microphone. She didn't tell a dirty joke. She didn't curse. She didn't insult her classmates or her teachers. Brittany McComb committed the egregious sin of attempting to thank God and Jesus. "I went through four years of school at Foothill and they taught me logic and they taught me freedom of speech," McComb stated. "God's the biggest part of my life.

OK, I've seen this 3 times now, and each time I said I would post it but was then distracted.

I had a conversation a couple of weeks ago with a friend who made the statement “I find it hard to believe you think Christians are being persecuted in the United States". I provided a couple of examples of current events such as the ACLU law suit currently pending regarding the removal of the cross on Mt. Soledad, the attempt to remove 'Under God' from our Pledge of Allegiance, and the recent law suit filed to have 'In God We Trust" removed from future currency.

Well my friend, here is another example. This time the Constitutional right of Free Speech was denied to an American Citizen. I truly feel that the ACLU is, 'by giving the people a voice' (right), attempting to destroy this Countries core values and to intentionally create a state of anarchy for the purpose of overthrowing the Government. There is truly no good that can come from this organization.
