Bush-nominated candidate for the Supreme Court, Samuel A. Alito, Jr. apparently agrees that Christian students should be able to speak out against homosexuality, at least in State College, PA.
In an opinion filed February 14, 2001 with the US Court of Appeals, Third Circuit striking down a school district anti-harassment policy, Saxe v. State College Area School District, Judge Samuel A. Alito, Jr. agreed with the right of the appellants in the case, two unnamed students at State College School District, State College, PA., and Mr. David W. Saxe, a member of the Pennsylvania State Board of Education and legal guardian of both student-plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs were represented by lawyers for the American Family Association which is described thus: “American Family Association exists to motivate and equip citizens to change the culture to reflect Biblical truth and traditional family values.”
The crux of the case was described:
“Plaintiffs openly and sincerely identify themselves as Christians. They believe, and their religion teaches, that homosexuality is a sin. Plaintiffs further believe that they have a right to speak out about the sinful nature and harmful effects of homosexuality. Plaintiffs also feel compelled by their religion to speak out on other topics, especially moral issues.”
I guess God does hate gays.
