It’s that time of year again as students who have spent the last 12 years of their life prepare to transition from high school into “the real world”. Caps, gowns, graduation practice and rehearsals…the official banning of anything Christian…wait what? It seems every year during the graduation season, organizations such as Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) seek-out schools, that are struggling financially, and threaten to take them to court if they allow prayer or religious songs during the high school graduation ceremony.
In fact, a Georgia school district has fallen victim to the efforts of FFRF. The school district will no longer allow prayers or songs with religious references at graduation ceremonies after a Wisconsin group threatened to file a lawsuit and suggested that forcing non-Christian students to listen to religious music was a form of bullying.
“Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Him, ‘Teacher, rebuke Your disciples. But Jesus answered, ‘I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!’” (Luke 19:39-40)
