Judge Upholds Illinois School's Ban on 'Be Happy, Not Gay' Shirt

Excertpted from FOX News.

CHICAGO — Two Neuqua Valley High School students won't be able to wear T-shirts saying "Be Happy, Not Gay," to school on Thursday following a judge's ruling.

U.S. District Judge William T. Hart ruled in favor of the high school Tuesday in a preliminary injunction that would have allowed the students to wear the shirts the day after Wednesday's National Day of Silence.

Double standard? The students who participate in the National Day of Silence are asked to wear t-shirts. If you follow the link from the official "Day of Silence" website to order t-shirts, you wind up at the "Nightsweats & T-Cells" website (WARNING - some tshirts may be offensive) where shirts like this are offered.

Will this shirt be allowed?
