After High School Student Blows Whistle on Christian Abstinence Speaker, She’s Told She Can’t Speak at Graduation

Student Katelyn Campbell told the media about how it wasn’t an optional assembly. In response, her principal, George Aulenbacher, threatened to tell Wellesley College (Katelyn’s future school) about how she was a “backstabber.” Katelyn told that to the media, too.

Here’s the story of what happened at Lumpkin County High School (Georgia) as I wrote about it a week ago:

50 students prayed together (with an adult coach) for more than six hours, causing them to miss their classes. Four faculty members were also part of the prayer group. Superintendent Dewey Moye said he wouldn’t punish anybody over the incident.

Now, the Freedom From Religion Foundation is saying the situation is even worse than we were led to believe (PDF)… in four specific areas.

After Atheists Stop Graduation Prayer at Lincoln County High School, Misinformation is Everywhere

Earlier this month, I wrote about a group of students at Lincoln County High School (in Kentucky). They were fed up with the way their administrators let students vote on whether or not to have a graduation prayer, knowing that the majority of students were Christians who want nothing more than to have the school honor their faith in public.
