    Point being is that just because some may find it offensive doesn't mean that it should be stopped. Read my second sig line.
    Mardi Gras and two men doing the horizontal tango are not tax payer funded efforts.

    They may, they'd be stupid there. That's a student choosing what he wants to wear on his own and as long as it doesn't violate a dress code its fine. However if they made that the band shirt that the band members had to wear for band events, then yes, they would probably be offended and demand the removal and would be in the right.

    ....do you watch and/or read Star Wars? Lord of the Rings? Harry Potter? Anything involving aliens as superior life forms? Just curious to find out where your baring is on this.

    I am sure the T-Shirts would have been perfectly acceptable to the community had they just had alternative explanation for the development of brass instruments on the back of the shirts. Perhaps something like:

    "The Creation of Brass" with a picture of a very Western European looking Adam holding a modern Saxophone, and an explanation of how the rods in it could not have resulted from just random mutations, thus it had to have been created by an "Intelligent Designer".

    The parents and administrators are not mature enough to make this decision. Let the student decide, let then argue it out. They are the ones wearing the shirts...
    I have looked at the shirts, IMO, the monkey thing is silly, and, I think it is political.
    Let the students decide..

    Really? I have a shirt showing the change from monkey to man and the last picture is a dude at an arcade cabinet, I don't think it endorses evolution as much as it endorses going to the arcade and playing games. But whatever.
