Student Denied Diploma for Speaking on His Faith During Graduation Speech

A high-school student out of Kentucky is apparently being punished for going off script during his graduation speech. His “crime?” – praising god.

The young man starts out his speech by saying that before another word comes out of his mouth he must “give the honor, the praise, and the glory to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

He then goes on to suggest to his fellow classmates that if they are feeling lost in their lives, finding Christ may be a good solution.

After the speech the local Superintendent was reportedly infuriated by the young man’s actions and the REFUSED to allow the student to get his diploma.

 

In response to that, the graduating student put out a video to clear the air on exactly what had happened.

He said that while he was forbidden from discussing Christ beforehand, he did it anyways because he knew it was wrong for them to prevent him from doing that.

The young man further added that as soon as his speech concluded, one of the principals came up to him and tapped him on his shoulder to inform him that he would be required to appear before the school board to answer for what he did.

The whole thing is completely ABSURD! Have we really reached the point now in America where even discussing Christ in a speech can get you punished?!

Watch the video here to see the “forbidden” speech.
