Illinois Accepts Be-Happy-Not-Gay T-Shirt

Written by 

The Court of Illinois decided that Heidi Zamecnik could wear her t-shirt with the printed slogan: “Be happy, Not gay”.


The Court said: “A school that permits advocacy of the rights of homosexual students cannot be allowed to stifle criticism of homosexuality.”


“People in our society do not have a legal right to prevent criticism of their beliefs or their way of life.”

Two students and Zamecnik consider that they did not open a breach peace, any form of clothing was acceptable.

Nate Kellum, legal consultant for Alliance Defence Fund which represented the pair, said: “Christian students shouldn’t be discriminated against for expressing their beliefs.”

The students have received their diploma, but the act applies for future participants.
