    Kind of like how a great deal of public speeches want to promote a single ideal.

    Why does it matter again? Seems like there is better things to worry about than a speech that no one will even remember.

    And people with other ideals should promote theirs. I'd like to see hundreds of statements of conviction by principled valedictorians across the country and across the full spectrum of belief and unbelief. We would be a better country.

    My podium is a little bit bigger and it is also a paycheck

    Like it is with any other public speaking event the speakers are invited to speak and that is what they do. No one ever said that life was fair and everyone would finish first.
    That is fine by me. Pay for it yourself though.
