Victory for Jessica Ahlquist

Victory for Jessica Ahlquist January 11, 2012

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.
