The debate was with a local fundamentalist Christian pastor. Before the debate, I learned a thing or two about the approach this pastor usually takes.
I learned that he never really intended to have a real debate with me and was going to rely heavily on an appeal to ignorance and faith. He intended to ridicule me while I gave serious concise arguments by simply parrying them with faith. So, in light of this new evidence I presented the following introduction to the debate.

Atheist Underworld. Student Takes Stand For Church and State Separation. Damon Fowler is an atheist who decided to take a stand against the unconstitutional (and illegal in Louisiana) prayers offered at graduation ceremonies by Bastrop High School.

He didn’t want the majority Christian viewpoint forced on one more person. On Tuesday Fowler sent this email to the school superintendent: Damon Fowler is an Atheist Hero. The atheist blogosphere has been buzzing about Damon Fowler and for good reason.
His case highlights what atheist youth here in the bible belt of the U.S. must endure. But the real story here is Damon's courage. Instead of giving in to fears about what might happen to him if he questioned the illegal prayers taking place at his high school graduation ceremony, he stood up for himself and asked his school to obey the law. Damon's actions remind us that it is the danger inherent in atheist activism that makes it necessary in the first place.
