A sad day for the First Amendment

Again really busy. But check this out at (as usual) The Volokh Conspiracy. A high school kid wore a shirt condemning homosexuality as immoral and he had to take it off. Apparently in the 9th circuit free speech doesn't protect speech that might hurt the feelings of minority students. I should note that there was no disruption caused by the shirt. Also this is the approach taken to free speech by many european countries and this case shows there's a real danger that it could happen here. Obviously there are so many things wrong with this the Supreme Court needs to grant certiorari.

Jude where are you? Look, I'm supporting gay bashers -- come back and yell at me!
