Erica Corder was not allowed to graduate from high school because she mentioned the name of Jesus in her commencement address. That's the claim by a pro-Christian legal firm representing the straight-A student who was reprimanded by her school for talking about her Christian faith.She filed suit against Lewis-Palmer High School in Monument, CO -- alleging her Constitutional rights were violated. A federal judge dismissed her complaint, arguing it was a school-sponsored event and therefore, open to censorship.
Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel, told the Associated Press: "School officials falsely claimed this straight-A student could not graduate because she mentioned the name of Jesus in her 30-second speech."
A federal judge last summer ruled the case was moot because Corder graduated. Your thoughts?
