Extracurricular Win.

“A school district in rural Florida must allow a Gay-Straight Alliance to meet on campus and must provide for the well-being of gay and straight students, a federal judge ruled, capping a nearly two-year legal battle over First Amendment rights… The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit on behalf of Okeechobee High School senior Yasmin Gonzalez in 2006 after the school principal said the club could not meet on campus. The school gave various arguments, claiming first there were too many clubs, and later that the school had an abstinence-only policy.” [Florida Times-Union]

      I love how they used the law that was originally intended to guarantee religious groups the right to meet at public schools. Those christians can’t always have it both ways I suppose.

      They try, though, Foofyjim: look at the whole three-gods-in-one thing. Neat trick. Nice to see ‘em lose sometimes, however.
