American Minute for August 19th:
A graduate of Georgetown University, he was a Fulbright Scholar before becoming Governor of Arkansas and then America's 42nd President. In 1998, he became the 2nd president ever to be impeached. His birth name was William Jefferson Blythe IV, born AUGUST 19, 1946. At age 15, he took his stepfather's name Clinton. At James Madison High School, July 12, 1995, President Bill Clinton stated: "The First Amendment does not require students to leave their religion at the schoolhouse door...It is especially important that parents feel confident that their children can practice religion...We need to make it easier and more acceptable for people to express and to celebrate their faith." Bill Clinton continued: "If students can wear T-shirts advertising sports teams, rock groups or politicians, they can also wear T-shirts that promote religion...Religion is too important to our history and our heritage for us to keep it out of our schools...Nothing in the First Amendment converts our public schools into religion-free zones or requires all religious expression to be left behind at the schoolhouse door." President Clinton concluded: "Government's schools also may not discriminate against private religious expression during the school day."
