Well, I saw it elsewhere that they had a minister selected for a prayer.
I'll see if I can dig up the link.
On May 17, a graduating senior sent an e-mail to school officials stating, as an atheist, that he objected to prayer being included in the ceremony. Morehouse Parish School System attorney Steve Katz told school officials that case law supported the student’s objection, and the prayer - to be delivered by a local pastor - was removed from the program. It was replaced by what was to have been a moment of silence.
What the student speaker was originally scheduled to say or do, I can't say, but that was what I was talking about, a non-student speaker with a religious agenda.
