Stories making the rounds now about school officials in Las Vegas cutting the mic on a valedictorian's speech because she mentioned -- *shudder* -- GOD!
I like this sentence from one of the early AP stories though: "The Clark County School District and free speech advocates are defending school officials' decision to cut short a high school valedictorian's commencement speech, saying the speech would have amounted to school-sponsored proselytizing."
"Free-speech advocates" -- in this case, the American Civil Liberties Union -- actually endorsing censorship.
You just can't make this stuff up.
The ACLU, apparently, has a problem supporting free speech when it involves topics it doesn't like.
If only she'd used the platform to insult the president, or rattle off a string of profanities. Now THAT would have been okay.
