Apologize for Inviting Pastor to Speak at Graduation?

GREAT FALLS – Montana State University’s lawyer says MSU-Northern officials don’t have to apologize for inviting a Christian pastor to give the invocation and benediction at the school’s graduation in May.

The ACLU of Montana had filed a complaint and asked for an apology after some faculty members said Pastor Tim Zerger of the Community Alliance Church proselytized during the May 8 ceremony. They say Zerger repeatedly referred to Jesus as a personal savior.

Leslie Taylor, chief legal counsel for MSU, says in her response to the ACLU that university officials had no intention of endorsing religion when they invited Zerger to speak.

ACLU communications director Amy Cannata says the university’s position is unfortunate but the group won’t pursue the issue in court.

    Philippians 3
    Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my LORD, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as RUBBISH, that I might GAIN CHRIST and be found in Him, not having my
    Own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is THROUGH FAITH IN CHRIST, the righteousness which is from God BY FAITH; that I might KNOW HIM and the POWER of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, BEING CONFORMED to His death…
    PRESS ON…For our citizenship IS IN HEAVEN, from which we also EAGERLY wait for the SAVIOR, THE LORD JESUS CHRiST!!
