Gov. Rick Perry made the following statement in response to the Fifth Circuit Court overturning a federal judge's order prohibiting public prayer at a Texas high school graduation ceremony:

"I'm proud that the Fifth Circuit Court has overturned the lower court's order that banned prayer at a Texas high school graduation. I'm thankful for Attorney General Abbott's leadership in ensuring the First Amendment, which prohibits governments from interfering with Americans' rights to freely express their religious beliefs, is protected. Texas will continue to fight for the rights of all those who wish to pray in our state."
