Despite opposition, graduation venue stands (OneNewsNow.com).

I really hate to side with the ACLU on this one but I believe that the school made a poor choice for the venue. Is the church the only location that is available for the graduation ceremony? I really doubt that is the case.

I personally would not mind attending a graduation in a church but I would not want to do it at the expense of offending someone that would rather not be there or making them feel uncomfortable.

If someone is a member of a different religious belief then I can understand how they would feel out of place and uncomfortable being forced to enter in to a house of worship that they would ordinarily not go into. Think about this for a moment. For those of us that go to church we go there because we want to and not because we are being forced to. There are places in the world we choose not to go into and that is because we have that right. Why should we expect other persons of faith or non religious people to have to go to this special event in a church?

I am thinking that the school should have picked a religion neutral location for the graduation cermemony.
