Mention God? Don't You Dare

by Ben Shapiro - June 21st, 2006 -
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. Just like other valedictorians thank their parents, I wanted to thank my lord and savior."

People here in Eastern Carolina like to think of themselves as being from God's country. The illusion is that we live very Christian lives. In truth, even in our politics, we stray far from anything that resembles what our religions would suggest we do. This article is one of the best I have seen in ridiculing the liberal democratic party acceptance of banning God from the public sphere. These same people go to church on Sunday and claim they support the Constitution, but their actions cannot begin to embrace with honesty the words in the Constituion that require "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." Can the democratic party not read the words PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF? You can flaunt homosexuality and promiscuity in the streets. Parades with naked bodies draped with over size sex organs are not just defended but lauded by democrats and their elected representatvies. But you cannot pray.

There is no doubt that if Brittany McComb had lauded her preferred form of sex, and even described it in disgusting detail, the ACLU would have fought for her right to say it. However God is banned from free speech and the free exercise of religion is never even considered protected. That bigotry is one of the primary reasons I consider that the democratic party left me, I did not leave it.

That our judges defend this double standard is not only corrupt, it is contemptible.
