Federal judge prohibits prayer at Texas graduation ceremony

A federal judge has ordered a Texas school district to
prohibit public prayer at a high school graduation

Chief U.S. District Judge Fred Biery’s order against
the Medina Valley Independent School District also
forbids students from using specific religious words
including “prayer” and “amen.”

The ruling was in response to a lawsuit filed by Christa

to participate in Saturday’s graduation ceremony. The
judge declared that the Schultz family and their son
would “suffer irreparable harm” if anyone prayed at
the ceremony….
