There are times that I am just plain impressed by children. I think that most of us grown-ups don’t think kids can fathom life from death. This is a time I do not mine being WRONG:
From Foxnews.com: A California mom says her public school administrators violated her daughter’s First Amendment rights when they ordered the seventh-grader to take off her pro-life T-shirt.
The complaint reads– “Upon arriving at the main office, Defendant Hernandez, intentionally and without Plaintiff’s consent, grabbed Plaintiff’s arm and forcibly escorted her toward Smith’s office, at all times maintaining a vice-like grip on Plaintiff’s arm. Hernandez only released Plaintiff’s arm after physically locating her in front of Smith and Defendant Rohrer….Smith and Rohrer ordered Plaintiff to remove her pro-life T-shirt and instructed Plaintiff to never wear her pro-life T-shirt at McSwain Elementary School ever again….Completely humiliated and held out for ridicule, Plaintiff complied with Defendants’ directives and removed her pro-life T-shirt, whereupon, Defendants seized and confiscated it. Defendants did not return Plaintiff’s property until the end of the school day.”
First Amendment attorney William Becker, who represents Amador, disagreed that the shirt could be seen as containing inappropriate messages. “The message of the T-shirt is that life is sacred,” he said. “One would be very hard pressed to find anything wrong with that particular idea, except that some people do object to the political message.”
There were no photos of unborn children torn apart by abortion…even though it is the truth when it comes to abortion. There was no ‘pride’ parade or demonstration or protest. It was a just a shirt. I’m sure that if it was a demon inspired Goth shirt or something depicting a gay lifestyle, all would be well. Remember, this was public school…check your Bible and your sensibilities at the door. The government owns you.
Where was the ACLU???
