Pennsylvania School District Replaces Nondenominational Prayer at Graduation with Moment of Silence

I recently post about how Pottsgrove High School in Pennsylvania would not have a formal prayer during the graduation ceremony taking place on June 15. Last year, a student tasked with leading the invocation chose to deliver a very explicitly Christian prayer, and District officials didn’t want a repeat of that situation.

I’m happy to tell you that the Pottsgrove School Board finalized that change on Tuesday night. Instead of a nondenominational prayer at the ceremony, there will just be a “moment of silent reflection.”

Or, as it’s better known to many Christians, a moment of oppression against their religious majority. Because if they can’t pray out loud for everyone to see, it doesn’t really count.

Too damn bad for them.
