S.C. high school student “bravely” veers from planned valedictory

And he “bravely” speaks the entire lord’s prayer.

This action was properly called a stunt, and the high school student was deemed “not brave,” by a group called Americans United for Separation of Church and State. Instead of the lord’s prayer, they quote Bob Dylan in their discourse on this student, the valedictorian, which appears on their web site, Wall of Separation.

In the so-called debate over the First Amendment — many people who write letters to the editor of the Daily News sink back smugly into their own primitive interpretation of the Constitution [“the First Amendment doesn’t say anything about separation of church and state!” they crow] — one side finds it conveniently simplistic, sort of biblically simplistic, to ignore that the Constitution is not actually the 5000 odd words they have managed to read but is a great forest that has bloomed into the thousands of court decisions published in all those law books you see on TV shows.
