The Crumbling Wall

Alright, we have a brick back on the wall — AU Wins Case Challenging Graduation Prayer In Castroville, Texas | Americans United:

A federal court today ordered a Texas public school district not to include prayers in its June 4 commencement ceremony, in response to a lawsuit brought by Americans United for Separation of Church and State...

"The law here is clear: No school-sponsored prayer during commencement," said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United. "Graduation is an important rite of passage for young people, and all students should feel welcome at it, regardless of what they believe or don’t believe about God."

Chalk one against god in government. Thanks, American United!
