"The valedictorian of a Vermont high school says school officials would not let him talk in his speech about how God had changed his life. Fair Haven Union High School valedictorian Kyle Gearwar told the crowd at the Friday graduation ceremony that he was only able to deliver half the speech he wanted to. Fair Haven Union High School principal Brett Blanchard said Gearwar was allowed to mention God and Jesus in the accepted portion of his speech. But Blanchard told the Burlington Free Press that public schools have to be careful about allowing someone to preach their religion at a school-sanctioned event." (06/16/11)
