Don’t Say That Name!

Don’t Say That Name!

From Rutherford.org:

On Thursday, June 15, 2006, [Brittany] McComb delivered her commencement address to over 400 fellow students, families and staff. However, believing that the district’s censorship of her speech amounted to a violation of her right to free speech, she attempted to deliver the original version of her remarks in which she shares her personal beliefs about the role that her Christian beliefs played in her success.

When school officials found her to be straying from the approved text, they unplugged her microphone, thus ending the address. Despite extensive jeers from the audience over the school officials’ actions, McComb was not permitted to finish giving her valedictory speech. [Read More]

Interesting that it was her mentioning of Jesus Christ that got the mic turned off. I suppose babbling about a vague “god” concept is ok, just don’t say “Jesus.”

I am encouraged by this girls bravery. May we see another million+ like her come through our schools!

I don’t know how the Supreme Court will decide on this case, but without a doubt we need young people to take a stand like Brittany McComb! Imagine if all Christian young people stood up for their beliefs and their rights (and responsibility) to testify about them?

I think the Secularist Silliness would not last long.

Climate Change Skeptics

From Onenewsnow.com:

“What we are trying to accomplish with this conference is to present to the politicians and to the public that the debate is not over about global warming or climate change; that there is plenty of room for disagreement; and that sound science shows that the earth is not warming,” says Miller.

“For much of the latter part of the 20th century there’s been a mild warming as we come out of an ice age — but the planet today is much cooler than it was a thousand years ago.”

Besides the 70+ scientists at this conference, more than 650 scientists worldwide have expressed skepticism over manmade climate change. [Read More]
