Court Rules for Anti-Gay Shirts

The seventh circuit court of appeals in Illinois has ruled that the wearing of anti-gay t-shirts in school is okay.

Students, protesting the Day Of Silence, an annual event which highlights the bullying of kids at school, wore shirts to school that proclaimed BE HAPPY NOT GAY, which was then changed to BE HAPPY BE STRAIGHT, until a school administrator stepped in and censored the students.


In its opinion, the court said a “school that permits advocacy of the rights of homosexual students cannot be allowed to stifle criticism of homosexuality…people in our society do not have a legal right to prevent criticism of their beliefs or even their way of life.”
