    this shows that you don't have unlimited free speech, on property not your own.

    the idea is, a person or persons should not use gatherings of people, where those people have to do business, or there for a particular reason, to put forth an agenda or a message.

    Good evening, AP.

    :

    I've been on a business trip, but I can't help but wonder at the amount of hostility this thread has unearthed by a valedictorian reciting the Lord's Prayer at a commencement! I could understand, maybe, if bad language or hate for some group were the subject of the speech, but who could be offended by a prayer in any language? Whatever happened to tolerance for others in this Country?

    Where is that written exactly? I really can't find that anywhere.

    Is public property not owned by the public?

    Well, the point is that minors do not have the same rights as adults and that a minor's parents are responsible for his or her actions still. For you to portray high seniors as "adults" is just rather silly. They really are not adults. They are not self-sufficient.

    Who is being hostile? Examples please. I thought it was a pretty civil conversation we were having.
