High schoolers defy atheists’ demand to remove the Lord’s Prayer from commencement by doing THIS

These high school students from Ohio really can restore your faith in our nation’s next generation. When the atheists at the Freedom From Religion Foundation did what they always do – send legally dubious threat letters to school districts pretending that the Constitution prohibits what is actually very constitutional behavior- the administration at East Liverpool High School backed down.

The seven decades-long practice of East Liverpool High School’s choir singing the Lord’s Prayer at graduation was going to come to an end because the school district didn’t want to fight a legal battle.

This is how the FFRF wins – they lie, they intimidate, and they get people to back down.

But even though the school board backed down, the students did not.

A local news affiliate has more:

It’s a 70-year-old tradition at East Liverpool High School — singing the Lord’s Prayer at graduation.

This year, the school was forced to remove the song from its program, WTOV reports, but the graduating class refused to say goodbye to the tradition.

WTOV reports that Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation told school administrators they should stop the choir from singing the Lord’s Prayer at graduation ceremonies.

The school removed the song rather than go to court and spend money.

But in reaction, this year’s valedictorian took to the stage and led the class in a recitation of the Lord’s Prayer during the ceremony.

They ended to applause and a standing ovation.

 

Keep fighting the good fight, kids!

This Mormon Missionary Survived Terror Attacks in Boston, Paris, AND Brussels

Mason Wells is only 19 years old. And this Mormon missionary was at the Brussels airport when ISIS struck earlier this week, suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon, injuries from shrapnel, and second- and third-degree burns on his face and hands.

Given his proximity to the explosions, this is pretty miraculous that he’s still alive.

But this story gets even crazier.

Turns out, Mason Wells was also in Paris when ISIS struck there last November.

AND he was one block away from the Boston Marathon bombing in April 2013.

The Daily Mail has more:

‘This is his third terrorist attack,’ Chad Wells, Mason’s father, told ABC News.

‘This is the third time that sadly in our society that we have a connection to a bomb blast.

‘We live in a dangerous world and not everyone is kind and loving.’ …

‘It’s a miracle he’s alive. It’s a blessing from God he’s alive,’ Chad Wells said. ‘He’s just grateful to be alive, to have survived this, we’re grateful that he survived such a horrible thing, because being right there at ground zero, and right next to the attack – and to survive – is nothing short of a huge miracle.’

Reports from eyewitnesses say that Wells kept a good sense of humor even as he was on the ground bleeding immediately after the attack.

(I hope Mason’s next mission isn’t anywhere close to where I live!)
