Also there are special laws that allow the use of god to be mentioned in graduation speeches like this, as long as it isn't used gratuitously. This chick mentioned god like 3 times total. She didn't break any laws.
So fuck the rules but didn't break laws. Oh, you hairsplitter. I suppose it would have been OK for her to ignore the dresscode and wear nothing but a Nazi Swastika armband to the graduation too, right?
She violated his rights to be free of religion in a government run institution. A lawsuit is justified if he wants it because of his rights. Again, if he had done the opposite, there would have been hell. Yeah, I can brush it aside, because I'm cool and intelligent like that. But on principle, it is against my rights to be subjected to any religion in such a setting.
I don't see how that is hard to understand.
Naw, I lied. I know exactly why people find that hard to understand.
