Angela prays, crowd cheers

There wasn’t an empty seat or a dry eye in Medina Valley High School’s football stadium Saturday night as valedictorian Angela Hildenbrand humbly raised her eyes to heaven and thanked God.

She had been barred from doing so by a federal judge.

However, late Friday evening, three judges of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals overturned that ruling and Hildenbrand was allowed to pray, which she did twice throughout the evening.

“Whether you would like to join me or not, feel free to do as you see best,” Hildenbrand said shortly before she lifted her voice to the Almighty, “God, I thank you for the support of the entire community through this.”

Security was heightened in preparation for large crowds, but the evening finished without incident.

    Thank God for young people willing to stand for their Lord. If agnostics wish to speak at this time, then let them work all their life to be valedictorian and say what they wish. As a valedictorian of my class of 1965, we prepared our speeches and was never asked to exclude our Christian heritage. Where times have taken us is scary to say the least. Thank you Angela.

    Atheism was declared to be a religion (6th U. S. Circuit about 1995). Those who seek to disallow the practice of any/all other religions are then, seeking to impose a state religion of atheism on ALL of us — isn’t that a violation of the so-called “separation of church and state” that they claim to be defending? It is time that they be “hoist upon their own petard!” (blown up by their own bomb). If they will stand by respectfully while I pray, I’ll stand by respectfully while they don’t pray.

    ‘Separation of Church and state’ gives one the right of ‘freedom OF god’ NOT ‘freedom FROM God’. Also read the next sentence of the Bill of Rights which reads—neither shall there be any law passed preventing the free expression thereof.

    If only we could find someone with as much character and courage to run for president…….

    I am so proud of this young lady to have the courage and fortitude to stand up to her belief and convictions. Too bad there are so many out there who do not possess those qualities and are so easily convinced to back down and give in to atheists and agnostics.

    God is great and God is good. And Jesus is Lord, Amen.

    I thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that Angela had the courage to stand up for her beliefs like Jesus had the courage to die for our sins. Even the sins of the agnostic family. Thank you Angela for your courage
