Despite Atheist Objections, Prayer Offered at Kentucky High School Graduation

The New American: As in past years, prayer took its rightful place during the May 24 graduation ceremony at Lincoln County High School in Stanford, Kentucky, despite the intense efforts of a contingent of students and local residents who tried to put a stop to it. According to Central Kentucky News, senior class president Jonathan Hardwick received an extended standing ovation after delivering the traditional graduation prayer, which was affirmed with a chorus of “Amens” from many moms, dads, and grandparents in attendance.
