Lawsuit: School Bans “Homosexuality Is A Sin” Shirt While Allowing Gay Pride Symbols

The College Fix.com ———–By Lexi Lonas ————————Wed., Oct.28, 2020

A student who was allegedly sent home for wearing a shirt stating “homosexuality is a sin” is now suing her Tennessee school district for violating her First Amendment rights and freedom of religion under state law.

She’s challenging the constitutionality of the Overton County Board of Education’s dress-code policy, both as written and applied to her, and seeking an injunction against its continued enforcement.

The federal lawsuit claims the teacher who sent her to the principal’s office on Aug. 25 had a pro-homosexuality symbol in the classroom. The principal allegedly told her it violated the dress code because her shirt was “sexually connotative.”

The principal called her parents to bring a change of clothes, but the student’s stepmother took her home instead, refusing to bring new clothes. As a result, Livingston Academy marked the student absent for the entire day.

“As interpreted an[d] applied, the School District’s Policy prohibits any message on clothing if somewhere within any other word the letters combine to [form] the word ‘sex,’” according to the suit.

The Oct. 16 filing does not name the girl because she’s a minor. She brought suit “by and through” her father, Richard Penkoski, against the district.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
