Jessica Ahlquist, the brave student at Cranston High School in Rhode Island, has won her lawsuit. The prayer banner in the Cranston High School gymnasium is coming down.
I have often referred to Jessica as the Harry Potter of atheism. She is young, got thrust into a situation against adults who tried to bully her, and stuck it out with class. She’s a hero. She is a testament to how our movement is owned by the young as well as the old. She is a big part of the future of this movement.
I know she reads this blog. Leave praise for her in the comments or over at her web site. She’s earned it.
