There's nothing like the First Amendment to separate the lambs from the Orcs. (I'd have said Trolls, meaning large club wielding mythical figures, but it might have been misunderstood, is this a question of politically correct speech from the other side?)
is free speech covered by 1st amendment.
addresses whether a school board had the right to suspend a then-high school senior for holding a banner that read "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" away from school property while the Olympic torch made its way through Juneau, Alaska, en route to the Salt Lake City Winter Games in 2002.
Frederick said his motivation for unfurling the banner was simple: He wanted it seen on television.
the following is another issue for SCOTUS:
puts before the Justices for the first time the Bush Administration's controversial policy of extending financial aid to "faith-based" groups. The issue, however, is not whether that violates constitutional principles of separation of religion and government. Rather, the case turns on whether taxpayers have a right to sue ("standing") to challenge a federal program that aids religion, but not with funds specifically earmarked by Congress for such organizations. The challenge in the case is aimed at a series of White House-sponsored regional conferences on federal aid to religious groups, paid for with general funds provided by Congress to the White House for its discretionary use.
legislation for that program has never been passed by congress. it is an executive order by president bush issued in his first week in office 29 jan 2001. a 'gift' to his supporters.
where in the constitution does it express that taxpayers fund this initiative?
