    Caught Being Godly: Valedictorian Defies School District’s Ban on Prayer by Praising God!

    Ladies, I wrote a post a while back titled, “Why We Need Christ Now More Than Ever.” In it, I sited a Pew Research Center survey that concluded that more Millennials are losing faith in God.

    I wrote:

    So why are so many young men and women denying or doubting the existence of God?

    Is it because God has been removed from all parts of public life, beginning with public schools? There was a time when children had to pray in school, Christmas was celebrated and God could be mentioned without chastisement. I know, I know. It’s because of the separation of church and state, and political correctness and the expectation to be inclusive. I know.

    Unfortunately, God is constantly being pushed out of schools. One example is at Liberty High School, in South Carolina, where the Pickens County School District decided to ban prayer at all school events, including graduation, because of complaints by atheist and secular groups. But the class of 2013’s valedictorian, Roy Costner IV, decided to take a stand.

    After ripping up his pre-approved speech, Costner did this…

    Those that we look up to, they have helped carve and mold us into the young adults that we are today. I’m so glad that both of my parents led me to the Lord at a young age (Roy Costner IV).

    Although I’m not one for breaking rules, I found this to be a very brave, inspiring and Godly move. This young man elevated Christ above society, and what a way to take a stand! And the response? I think that the cheers and applause was pretty indicative of how the majority of people felt about the ban on prayer.

    Ladies, what do you think about what Costner did? Would you ever do something similar?
