    as well it should have offended... if you are going to speak in tongues it should be in a charasmatic church... haven't they heard of separation of church and state.

    He congratulated the students in both English and Spanish. So what?

    Why stop at just English and Spanish?

    All speechs in America should be given in every language in the world.

    The absurd argument works so well, especially in this case where the graduating class was all of 30 and most of their parents spoke only Spanish.

    :rolleyes:

    Some just have to scrape for anything about which to be outraged. Willful victims do, too. Pathetic.

    I'm not outraged, it is what it is.

    I guess I should be glad the Principle spoke some English.

    "Some English"? He gave his entire speech in English and then gave it in Spanish.

    Try reading the links you post.

    So why not Thai, or don't the parent's who are Thai deserve the same courtesy as those who are Hispanic?

    How about Japanese? German? Italian?

    Unless this school was a bilingual school, designed to teach kids TWO languages equally, then it was inappropriate. Leaving out the American parents and children while speaking to those who aren't American (and you have to learn English to become a citizen) is insulting.

    English is not the offical language of the US of A.
