Politics High Court Takes “Bong Hits 4 Jesus”
posted by December 1 at 15:09 PMon
As if a lower court’s ruling and the Constitution aren’t already clear enough, the Supreme Court agreed today to step in to clarify a student’s right to free speech. In an appeal, Kenneth Starr will argue that the Juneau, Alaska school board was right to suspend a high-school student for promoting illegal drug use when he displayed a banner declaring “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” off school grounds. The student, who has been represented by the free-speech lovin’ ACLU, claims he just wanted the message to appear in the background of local TV news footage when they filmed the Olympic Torch passing though Juneau on its way to the 2002 Olympic Games.
Any level-headed American knows the 1st Amendment exists to protect such speech - no matter how inane - and it’s far too late for Jesus to do bong hits.
