Student Who Wore Shirt That Said “Homosexuality Is A Sin” Awarded Payment From District
The point of the First Amendment is not to defend speech you agree with. Most people reading this know that. But for some reason, many of those tasked with educating our next generation, often don’t.
“More than three years after a street preacher's daughter was sent home from school for wearing a T-shirt declaring ‘homosexuality is a sin,’ the family's litigation against the school district has come to an end as the now-adult former student has received a cash payment as part of a settlement.
In a settlement agreement reached in November and shared with The Christian Post, the Overton County Board of Education in Tennessee agreed to pay $101 to Brielle Penkoski three years after she was sent home from the Livingston Academy public high school for wearing the shirt.
The school board will also pay the plaintiff's attorney's fees and costs. Penkoski, a minor when the lawsuit was first filed in 2020, is the daughter of street preacher Rich Penkoski, who leads the online ministry Warriors for Christ.”
Brielle will be awarded about $100. Which is actually a lot more than the lawyers expected. They will of course also be paying legal fees and all that. But the real win, in this case, is that the teachers will now have to take a First Amendment course.
“Penkoski told CP that after his daughter refused to change out of the shirt, she was sent home from school. He said the principal at the time justified the demand to remove his daughter's shirt because the clothing contained a ‘sexual connotation.’
Penkoski believed the school district held a double standard when it comes to what constitutes "sexual connotation" because one of Brielle's teachers had an LGBT pride sticker on display in his classroom, which featured the rainbow colors that have come to symbolize LGBT advocacy.”
We know exactly why the student was sent home. And it is probably safe to assume it has nothing to do with the "connotation" of the shirt. Obviously, had the student worn a shirt that said something along the lines of "My body my choice" she would have been able to spend the entire at school with her very woke teachers.
The point is, it was not that she was wearing a shirt with a certain "connotation." It is that she was wearing a shirt that had the wrong group think. She had the wrong political opinion. Had she promoted some sort of leftist degenerate cause, none of this would have happened. But because she was promoting views that go against the leftist orthodoxy, she was treated as if she had done something wrong.
