Thanks for jumping in.

Schools do not have the right to ban students from praying, or expressing their beliefs on t-shirts or in public forums.

Religious speech is protected speech. We have freedom of speech and we have freedom of religion, so we have freedom to discuss religion on an equal basis with any other world view.

Why do liberals find pornography and atheistic speech constituitionally protected speech, but deny the rights of others who don't see things their way? Is this intolerance or what?

Schools that have liberal administrators have told students, in numerous instances, that their religious speech would not be permitted. For example, the administrators at Columbine have told students that religous content was not going to be permitted on a memorial. This is absolutely unconstitutional. Once you have opened the door to student speech, they must follow their own dictates of conscience, within the realm of decency, what they want to say.

Leave your personal beliefs at the door is a ploy from liberals to prohibit religious and conservative thought, while they take no care to monitor their own speech for the sake of conservatives.
