Speech Contraction

A recent ruling by the 9th Circuit (pdf) has ruled that a student cannot wear a message that may make "derogatory and injurious remarks directed at students' minority status such as race, religion, and sexual orientation." 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." This is of course hailed by the left in their rush to overthrow any Christian bonds this nation still has.

What isnt being thought of, is if speech can be limited in one way it can be limited in another. If today speaking against homosexuality is not allowed by courts and laws, what would happen if the Left's favorite boogeyman, Bible-thumping Christians actually took over the government? If, as the Left so vocally fears, those Christians install a theocratic government (hasnt happened yet, just what ARE the chances?) and outlaw gays and wiccans and the whole Kennedy Klan, then the Left's speech could equally be taken away.

Seems that the old saying is true, Never give any power to government that you wouldn't give to your worst enemy
