Going Off Script at Graduation

In South Carolina, a high school valedictorian had to have his speech approved by the local administrators.  The school district, agents of the state, probably did not want the young man to make statements hostile to the government.  At the podium, the speaker ripped up his prepared remarks and began to recite the Lord's Prayer to the cheers of all...errrr.....most of the attendees at the ceremony.  Well done, young man! Well done!!
