A recent college graduate won her battle to mention Jesus and the Bible in her graduation speech.

Colorado Mesa University student Karissa Erickson was initially told by the university that “speeches should be free of any one religious slant.” But thanks to a letter sent to the university by the Alliance Defending Freedom to appeal the rule prohibiting religious content in school-related speeches, Erickson was allowed to give her speech on May 11.

Despite the school allowing Erickson to give her speech, some university officials said she could face “repercussions” by leaving the references to Jesus and the Bible in her speech.
