Sen. Cornyn: Banning Prayer at Graduation Wrong Lesson for Class of 2011

See the full statement by U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas), on the Medina Valley H.S. case in Texas.

The Americans United for Separation of Church and State (AUSCS) filed a lawsuit against Medina Valley Independent School District last week on behalf of an agnostic couple whose son threatened not to attend his graduation if there was a prayer.

Our organization, Liberty Institute, has filed a court motion to protect the right of the valedictorian of the 2011 class for Medina Valley H.S., who has been censored from praying.  Find our release here.

In 2007, we helped pass the School Children’s Religous Liberty Bill to help protect students from this type of censorship.
