High School Valedictorian Refuses to Bow Down

21 06 2006

Brittany McComb was the valedictorian at Foothill High School recently. She graduated with a 4.7 GPA. She earned the right to address the other graduates at Foothill, located in Henderson, Nevada.

She gave a copy of her graduating speech to the school administrators. It contained some Biblical references and even mentioned (one time) the name “Christ.” The school administrators censored some of the Biblical references. They also censored the single reference to Christ.

Then the school officials handed the speech over to the ACLU for approval and more censoring. After getting the OK from the ACLU, Brittany’s speech (minus the censored references to the Bible and Christ) was approved. Brittany was warned that if she deviated from the ACLU approved language, her mic would be cut off.

Then came the moment for the big decision. She would not bow down, she decided. She would go with her original version. She stepped to the mic and began her speech. But just before she could utter the name “Christ,” her mic went dead. School officials silenced her. The crowd of 400 jeered for several minutes, angry at the action of the school officials. The ACLU was happy. They had silenced another Christian.

“I went through four years of school at Foothill and they taught me logic and they taught me freedom of speech. God’s the biggest part of my life. Just like other valedictorians thank their parents, I wanted to thank my Lord and Savior,” Brittany said.

Because she refused to bow down to the ACLU’s idol of gold, she did not get her wish. She was censored.

This is such an obvious infringment on a citizen’s right to “free excercise thereof,” that any disputes, including those of the ACLU, are targeted, outright attacks on freedom. Even Alan Colmes agreed with Hannity and McComb on this on.

Stop The ACLU and Expose The Left have the video of Brittany’s visit on Hannity and Colmes Monday evening. Blue Star Chronicles wonders if they would have unplugged her if she mentioned allah’s name too.
