some speech isn't so free anymore

The Volokh Conspiracy:
"Tyler Harper wore an anti-homosexuality T-shirt to school, apparently responding to a pro-gay-rights event put on at the school by the Gay-Straight Alliance at the school. On the front, the T-shirt said, 'Be Ashamed, Our School Embraced What God Has Condemned,' and on the back, it said 'Homosexuality is Shameful.' The principal insisted that Harper take off the T-shirt. Harper sued, claiming this violated his First Amendment rights.

Harper's speech is constitutionally unprotected, the Ninth Circuit just ruled today."
Disgusting ... read Eugene's article if you're interested in free speech in America.
