Vt. High School Grad Says His Speech Censored; Wanted to Talk on How Jesus Changed His Life

The Christian Broadcast Network website reports today (June 17, 2011) that the valedictorian of a Vermont high school says his graduation speech was censored by school officials.

Kyle Gearwar -- valedictorian of Fair Haven Union High School -- wanted to talk about how Jesus and the Bible changed his life, but he told the audience that he was allowed to deliver only half his speech.

"This was the message God gave me, and I'm not allowed to share it with you," he said, holding up the pages of his speech.

Brett Blanchar -- the school's principal -- told the "Burlington Free Press" that public schools have to be careful about letting religion be preached at a school-sanctioned event.
