    If you think that a proper valedictorian speech is about blathering on about whatever you want, something is wrong.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Can't believe this has to be explained again, but the bottom line is the boy didn't get into any trouble. Also, the problem was not so much the CONTENT of speech but the fact that he broke the rules and he did not allow school officials to pre approve the speech, so he was insubordinate.

    Had our Founders not been insubordinate, we might not be having this discussion...

    Again, trying to equate a high school boy's insubordination towards school officials to the Revolutionary war.

    You can roll our eyes all day long, but it doesn't change the substance of the post...

    Or it possibly flew right by you. Let me ask you this: Do you think speakers should always tailor their speeches to what is expected/desired by the audience or those who gave them the opportunity to speak?
