Government Officials and Censorship

Schools love censorship - it's for the children of course. Gay student sues over banned T-shirt | |

Of course others wear shirts with religious symbols or bible versus. But this one was too much.
Clark said administrators initially said the shirt was disruptive and later that it was too religious. He said they now claim it violates rules prohibiting clothing that is indecent or sexual in nature.
Yeah, the rainbow flag and "homophobe" are just beyond the pale.

While it is true that students' constitutional rights have some limits on school property, this is more about denying his existence than anything else. (Bullying is an on-going issue, so why aren't the authorities doing something about that?) Next they will say you can't wear black armbands to protest the war. Whichever war we are protesting today. (What happened to all the anti-war protestors? Maybe they are still protesting in Texas....)

So now, instead of acting like reasonable humans - the lawyer tried to settle without a suit - the district, which I am sure is just rolling in excess money, will spend some of that money on lawyers' fees. Good thinking.
