Judge Posner for the 7th Circuit: Schools Cannot Censor Students' Speech "Be Happy, Not Gay"


From an ADF Alert:

7th Circuit rules Illinois high school ‘cannot…stifle criticism of homosexuality’

Alliance Defense Fund attorneys won an important decision Tuesday in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit against Indian Prairie School District on behalf of high school students prohibited from expressing their religious views about homosexual behavior on T-shirts.  The court rejected Indian Prairie’s argument that school officials could justifiably put the First Amendment aside and censor T-shirts with the message “Be Happy, Not Gay” to prevent some students’ from having their feelings hurt.
