High School Grad Silences Administration After Being Told To Remove ‘Jesus’ From Commencement Speech [Video]

Beaver High School in Beaver County, Pennsylvania – the school officials tried to stop a student from including references to God in her commencement speech, Faithwire reported.

The administration initially wanted graduate Moriah Bridges to “remove all religious references” from her commencement address, including the words “God,” “Lord” and a prayer she had included. Effectively, they wanted her to silence Jesus.

Their plan didn’t go that well for them…

“I’ve always been a rule follower,” Bridges stated at the end of her speech. “When they said not to chew gum, I didn’t chew gum. When they said not to use your cellphone, I didn’t use my cellphone. But today, in the spirit of defying expectations, and for perhaps the last time at this podium, I say, ‘in the righteous name of Jesus Christ, Amen.’”

WTAE noted that Bridges is now being represented by “First Liberty,” a religious freedom law firm, which is demanding a meeting with school administration officials to change school policy.

    Great job Miss. Bridges. Its about time somebody stood up for their beliefs. Who the hell gave these schools the right to censor what we believe in or what we say. Last time I checked schools in Minnesota and Michigan were giving muslims a special room at our schools to pray. What the hell is going on in this country?

      School administrators are afraid of their own shadows. The minority rules (atheists).
