A bill that would that specify in state law that Kentucky’s public school students and public college or university students are allowed to express their religious and political views in their school work, artwork, speeches and other ways is heading to the governor for his signature.
Senate Bill 17, sponsored by Sen. Albert Robinson (R-London), also states that public school students are allowed to display religious messages on their clothes while at school, use school newspapers and public address systems to announce student religious meetings, and distribute political literature on school grounds. And Kentucky public colleges and universities would be prohibited from both unreasonable restrictions on student speech exercised outdoors on campus and from give religious and political organizations “equal access to public forums.”
If you need a law to insure that the First amendment is followed, then we’re all in trouble. The nibblers have used the idea of “offending someone” to nibble away right…bit by bit…until lawmakers are forced to come up with a specific law. A law which we never should have needed.
We do not have freedom from religion, but we all have freedom of religion.
