Why is it always one family, one parent that wants to screw things up for everyone else? Why don't some Christian parents sue when graduation is held in a secular building because they aren't comfortable in that environment.
Why does this Luchenitser think there is a place where you can make everyone comfortable? I am so sick of these ridiculous suits that are entertained by mad judges that I am willing to look at almost any proposal that will put an end to it.
At least one family wants Palm Bay High's graduation ceremony moved from a church to another site, but the school district says it's not changing its plans.
Attorneys for the family say they plan to file a lawsuit this morning charging that the event is unconstitutional.
The complaint and request for a temporary restraining order, to be filed in federal district court in Orlando, will insist that any religious symbols at Calvary Chapel in West Melbourne be covered or that the ceremony be moved to a nonreligious site.
Though the suit would address only Palm Bay's event, it threatens to disrupt three more public school graduations scheduled at the church starting Thursday and involving about 2,000 students.
"Nobody wants this graduation to be disrupted," said Alex Luchenitser, senior litigation counsel for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a Washington, D.C.-based group representing the plaintiffs. "We just want this to take place in a way that all students feel comfortable, no matter what religion they believe in."
The plaintiffs would include at least one parent and student from Palm Bay's senior class, and at least one parent of a younger student, Luchenitser said.
