Graduating Students Stand Up For Lord’s Prayer At Graduation
EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio — A 70-year tradition at East Liverpool High School was removed from their graduation ceremony, but students weren’t having it.
When the Freedom from Religion Foundation demanded that East Liverpool High School administrators stop their choir from singing the Lord’s Prayer at graduation, students were having none of it. Singing the Lord’s Prayer has been a 70-year tradition at the Ohio school.
School Board President Larry Walton told the Morning Journal News, “The [U.S.] Supreme Court says we can’t do it. I’m not going to risk this school by trying to fight the Supreme Court.”
The school administrators removed the song from last Sunday’s program.
“We said ‘okay, we just won’t do it anymore,’” a school administrator told reporters. “It was a decision made because we don’t have a lot of money and we’d rather hire teachers than pay lawyers.”
Fortunately, students took matters into their own hands. Watch what happened when Valedictorian Jonathan Montgomery took to the stage in the video below:
