Sounds ridiculous, doesn't it

"The principle that the Supreme Court has made clear is that school districts may not coerce students or students' family members to be exposed to religion at graduation," said Alex Luchenitser, senior counsel for Americans United.
Mega-church would expose students to "a very large cross"

'Well maybe it's about time some of those darn teenagers were exposed to a very large cross!' many will doubtless argue.
In addition, at past graduations, the church displayed banners reading "Leading Children to a Transforming Life in Jesus" and "Lord of Lords," and church personnel distributed religious pamphlets and other materials to graduating [public school] students and their families.
That's a fair bit dicier, them being a captive audience.
