Roy Costner IV, a former public school student from South Carolina, stunned the audience at his high school graduation last weekend when he ripped up his previously-approved valedictorian speech, going on, instead, to speak about God — and then deliver the Lord’s prayer.

( In your Face you Satan Worshiping Liberal scum educators )

The act, which drew loud applause, was taken in opposition to the School District of Pickens County’s decision to axe prayers from graduation events, Christian News reports. Officials said that they had recently received complaints from atheist activists and church-state separatists, leading to the removal of invocations from all school events.

( Boo Freakin Hoo. One Atheist complains and 90 % suffer. Barf )

But that didn’t stop Costner.

The Liberty High School ceremony is already making its way into national headlines, as the valedictorian’s actions and the subsequent cheers this past Saturday were caught on video.

As he spoke, Costner went from merely mentioning “the Lord” to jumping right into the well-known prayer.

“Those that we look up to, they have helped carve and mold us into the young adults that we are today. I’m so glad that both of my parents led me to the Lord at a young age,” he said. “And I think most of you will understand when I say –”

And that’s when he commenced the popular invocation.

“Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name,” Costner continued. “Thy Kingdom come…”

Throughout the entirety of the prayer, cheers and clapping raged. The school district, which, as stated, was already facing scrutiny over graduation prayers earlier this year, has no plans to punish the former student for his actions (after all, he’s no longer under their authority, so what retribution could he receive?).

I Don’t usually ask , but please plaster this to Facebook and wherever else you can. Thank you,   Steve

As an agnostic, I must say this. That was a blatant, in-your-face, and most provocative political statement!!………………………… But, a most necessary one at that, and I loved every minute of it!! I love it when libtards squirm!! That young man has great character, and you know he didn’t pick that up from school.
With all the wild applause, the faculty had no choice but to sit there and eat crow. Priceless!

The lines that hold tyrus’s ship to the four dynasties are being snapped by the righteous…the caulkers are loosing the battle to seal the flood of God’s rising waters (people).

What a wonderful young man Roy Costner is! He’s a valedictorian, so he’s smart, hardworking, and accomplished. With reverence for God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, Costner has a bright future ahead of him.

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.
Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which in heaven. Mathew 5:14-16

There are young people who have had this same courage in the past. As far back as 1992, there was a young man who graduated who was determined that God would be mentioned at his graduation. This anti-God insanity has been around for a while now.
