Valedictorian Roy Costner IV Rips Up Speech and Then Recites The Lord’s Prayer at Liberty High School in South Carolina

 

This is what leadership and character is about, standing up for one’s principles and beliefs, no matter what. There is hope for our future.

Roy Costner, the Liberty High School valedictorian, made a stand for the First Amendment, freedom of speech and freedom of religion and his religious beliefs and there was no government, school board, ACLU or anti-religious an atheist groups could do a damn thing about it. This is what leaders, character and heroes are made of. During his valedictorian speech at Liberty High School in South Carolina, 30 seconds into his faculty approved speech, Costner tore it up and ad-libbed it. Costner then began reciting the Lord’s Prayer, much to the shock of the school faculty and the applause from those in attendance. For all of you who think you have a right to have your 1st Amendment rights protected, by taking other’s away, you are wrong and clueless. And as for separation of Church and State, read the Constitution.

A special shout out to Roy Costner IV who dared stand up for his convictions and beliefs. In a time in which we are witness to adults in politics and government agency bureaucrats who have zero character, along comes this high school grad. He is our Scared Monkeys hero of the day.

AMEN BROTHER!!!

Watch the actual speech below from Valedictorian Roy Costner IV

Liberty High School valedictorian Roy Costner hadn’t been at the podium for more than 30 seconds when he tore up the speech he had gotten approved by the faculty and began reciting the Lord’s Prayer to thunderous applause.

Patrick Elliott with the Freedom From Religion Foundation says they have received complaints about the district in South Carolina in the past for having student-led prayers at school board meetings.

So they wrote to them and asked them to stop.

“Sometimes people think, ‘majority rules’ but that’s not really the case with a constitutional right. So students do have the right to attend school without the school promoting or endorsing religion even if you know a large amount of people in the community would hope that the school would do so,” Elliott said.
