So let's see if I've got this straight: Pornography, which objectifies and exploits women, destroys marriages and families and has proven to be addictive, is free speech, ruled so by the Supreme Court as guaranteed by the Constitution. Also, violent video games, which glorify violence, theft, mayhem, gore and rape can be sold to children of any age because the Supreme Court says we can't deny the right of free speech to anyone regardless of their age.
But an award-winning teacher who posted his opinion on gay marriage on his social networking page, on his own computer, on his own time, in his own home, stating a view held by a majority of Americans, can be suspended for exercising his right to free speech? Could someone please explain it to me because I just don't get it?
