Judge Blocks Prayer at High School Graduation

And what was the students' reaction to this mandate?
RUSSELL SPRINGS, Ky. (AP) - The senior class at a southern Kentucky high school gave their response Friday night to a federal judge's order banning prayer at commencement.

About 200 seniors stood during the principal's opening remarks and began reciting the Lord's Prayer, prompting a standing ovation from a standing-room only crowd at the Russell County High School gymnasium. The thunderous applause drowned out the last part of the prayer.

Good for them! While the order, no doubt, was directed toward the administration, the seniors, whose graduation it was to begin with, were under no obligation to follow the judge's order.

Best wishes to all of them! Now they need to pray for the confused judge and pray for the quick demise of the ACLU.
