Good News! (For Once)

“School officials”–a euphemism for dunderheads–at Beaver High School in Pennsylvania were in the news this month for forbidding a student to mention the name of Jesus Christ in her graduation speech–and she did it anyway (http://conservativetribune.com/high-school-grad-jesus/).

Moriah Bridges said, “I’ve always been a rule follower… But today, in the spirit of defying expectations, and for perhaps the last time at this podium, I say, ‘in the righteous name of Jesus Christ, Amen.” For which she received a long and loud ovation.

The school bigwigs don’t know what to do about it. They’re stumped. Like, it’s too late to make her repeat high school. Their position was that it’s “against the law” for anyone connected with the school district to invoke the name of Jesus Christ.

We hail and applaud this young woman for having, as the Apostles had, the courage to obey God rather than men.

We need a great deal more of this.
