    Oh but it does.

    I never said they don't. So long as its review falls under the before mentioned criteria.
    To some people, the Lord's prayer might be offensive. Perhaps I'm a satanist?

    This is from CB's link.

    Moreover, in Lassonde v. Pleasanton Unified Sch. Dist., 320 F.3d 979 (9th Cir. 2003), the Ninth Circuit applied Cole and held that a public school could not allow a co-salutatorian to include sectarian or proselytizing remarks in his speech even if a disclaimer was included. The student drafted a speech that “quoted extensively from the Bible” and was intended to encourage other students to accept Christ. Id. at 981. The school “advised [the student] that references to God as they related to [his] own beliefs were permissible, but that proselytizing comments were not.” Id. (emphasis added). The school allowed the student to retain “several personal references to his religion” in his speech. Id. The Ninth Circuit held that the school’s actions were required by the Establishment Clause due to the control that the school exercised over the graduation ceremony. Id. at 984.

    you cannot just becuase something is public..... exercise any right you have.

    on the public streets, it has become an accepted practice, but not usually in public buildings.

    becuase different from the streets, people of many aspects of life have to convene in public buildings for some type of business, and they should not have to be subject to you exercising any right you wish to.
    I find this viewpoint a bit disconcerting coming from someone purporting to be a libertarian.

    Depending on your location and to varying degrees you can carry weapons in public places.

    Personally it is an affront on our rights that this isn't a universal allowance.

    Hold on now. Do you hear what you're saying?

    and they should not have to be subject to you exercising any right you wish to.
    Your preference trumps my RIGHTS? Au contraire mon frere. Rights aren't limited to the anyone's individual tastes, and especially not limited by prejudice.

    They're kids that we're talking about here, high school students.

    when i speak about issues like these, i always ask myself a question....and one is " who's property is it"

    i am a strong supporter of private property rights, and when pubic property is in play, you cant treat it like private, their are limitations on your rights when your on public property.
