so basically he didn't say anything at all and is lauded for being able to recite dogma in lieu of being able to actually form a coherent point and deliver it

Breaking News from South Carolina!

 

Teen, still wet behind the ears, publicly praises parental indoctrination in the worship of bronze age, sheep herder, sky god. 

 

Locals cheer teen's lack of intellectual curiosity and willingness to conform to baseless cultural superstitions.

 

Bottom line:  Another individual publicly embraces ignorance.

Is it sad that I just shrug at this post?  Does that make me a bad person that I am having trouble really caring what this high school senior did?  (Not trying to insinuate that those of you that do care are in any way less allowed to have your opinion).  I just have trouble seeing the big deal, I guess.  Congrats on your free speech.

i'm not as annoyed as he did it (he's a high schooler, of course he's stupid) as i am at the victorious crowing of morons nationwide on social media who should realize it's idiotic but instead hail this young gentleman as a future senator of south carolina. luckily for him the bar is set pretty low to begin with

Meanwhile, in Alabama...

ATMORE, Ala. (AP) — An American Indian student says she's being fined $1,000 for wearing a feather on her mortarboard when she graduated from high school in south Alabama.

Chelsey Ramer says she feels like she's being discriminated against by her alma mater, Escambia Academy in Atmore.

Ramer is part of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, and the 17-year-old says she wore a feather at graduation last month to honor her heritage.

Dont let the media twist the important issues.  Remember, The school district banned a name because of a religious  connotation.  That is unconstitutional.  What ever the high schooler did simply shed light on the subject.  It would not have mattered whether or not he spoke the Quran, Torah, Bible, Tripitaka.  The school protested christianity by banning the name Jesus. They had no right, in fact they exercised horrible judgement and abuse of power.  Not supporting something and outright banning it are entirely different things.

 

And for the record, had they banned the name Mohammed and the student performed Azan, he would be equally within his rights and should get equal protection under the constitution.

One of the high school's in my county all stood up tonight during the moment of silence at their graduation (prayer was ruled not to be allowed last week), and recited the Lord's Prayer in protest.  Current and former students are on Facebook congratulating themselves and acting proud.  

 

These same people will now cite the 2nd Amendement/Constitution as the reason they support gun rights, while ignoring the 1st Amendment totally when it comes to religion.  I just don't understand how some people can blatantly be so silly sometimes.
