School Drops Musical Version of 'Lord's Prayer' from Graduation

A musical rendition of “The Lord’s Prayer” has been performed at East Liverpool High School’s commencement for nearly 70 years.

Lisa Ensinger performed the sacred song when she was a senior at the Ohio school in 1986.

“It’s a tradition,” she told me – a tradition that she continued when she became the high school’s choir director.

But “The Lord’s Prayer” will no longer be performed at graduation thanks to a meddling bunch of atheists, agnostics and free-thinkers from Wisconsin. I document their predatory behavior in my book, “God Less America.”

The Freedom From Religion Foundation fired off a letter to the school district alleging that someone complained after hearing the song at the 2015 graduation ceremonies, the Morning Journal News reports.

The FFRF warned that it is against the law for a public school to promote religion – and they “asked” that no religious songs be sung at graduation in the future, the newspaper reported.

The district was faced with a choice – drop the song and appease the out-of-town bullies or keep the song and risk a lawsuit.
