More grown adults attempt to justify teens' anti-gay tees

by Jeremy Hooper

    According to WorldNetDaily, thirteen students who were suspended last week from Roseville, California's Oakmont High School for wearing T-shirts bearing the messages "Homosexuality is sin. Jesus can set you free," are considering filing a lawsuit to challenge the disciplinary action. Though we don't really know why they need the court's assistance, as the young'uns would certainly seem judgmental enough to judge their lack of judgement themselves.

As per usual in these types of cases, those providing legal assistance to the students (in this case, the Christian conservative Pacific Justice Institute) are defending the student's message-based attire as protected under the concept of "religious freedom." Good news for all those students who are just dying to wear their "When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment. (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)" tees.
