    Have any recent examples of that? Haven't seen that happen since Tebow played and that was around five years ago.

    The College student got to give the speech the college tried to stop her from. How is that feeble?

    That’s why God can’t help babies in Africa who are dying of starvation because he is busy helping athletes get a touchdown

    Ehhhh... this is a bit of a stretch. This is fairly open-and-shut under U.S. law. "Congress shall make no law ... prohibiting the free exercise (of religion)."

    Court have long interpreted this to mean "No public agency may officially endorse a religious creed, nor may they seek to keep any private citizen or privately owned temple from expressing its creed in a public space."

    When a student gives a speech at a graduation, they may be doing so with the college's blessing (no pun intended) but there's no confusion, it's his/her own point of view. If there are rules or "advice" put in place regarding what can and cannot be said, they have to be set on objective criteria. If they want to stop someone saying something, it has to be offensive and/or out of order by any reasonable measure; they can't shush them solely in the name of secularism.
