Schools in the western United States can forbid a high school student from wearing a T-shirt that denigrates gay and lesbian students, a sharply divided federals appeals court in San Francisco ruled today.
In a 2-1 decision, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said that a T-shirt that proclaimed "Be Ashamed, Our School Embraced What God Has Condemned'' on the front and "Homosexuality Is Shameful'' on the back was "injurious to gay and lesbian students and interfered with their right to learn.'' The court said that the shirt can be barred on a public high school campus without violating the 1st Amendment.
I feel dirty and need to take a shower. I didn't think it possible, but the U.S. 9th Circus Court actually rendered a decision that is constitutional. What kind of sick, twisted parent allows their kid to wear a shirt to school that says 'god hates fags'?
And this is in San Francisco...they are lucky nobody pounded their pathetic asses into the ground (no pun intended).
