Christian Salutatorian Defies High School Order and Speaks Out About His Faith!
Written by T.M. Gaouette | June 21, 2014
Ladies, we’ve seen this before, and often during graduation season–Christians are asked to remain silent about their faith for fear of offending others. But Christians are fighting back, as in the case of Brooks Hamby, a senior at Brawley Union High School in Brawley, Calif.
When Hamby’s graduation speech was rejected three times by the school’s administration because it mentioned his Christian faith, he chose to speak about it anyway. In fact, he used the experience to defend his point.
“I didn’t want to compromise my faith,” Hamby said when asked about his decision. “I wasn’t interested in removing every trace of God or Jesus. I wasn’t interested in conforming to those demands. I did not want to compromise my values. I didn’t want to water down the message.”
