Petition Tag - first amendment rights
John Freshwater, a two-time "Teacher of the Year," including in 2007, is under investigation by Mount Vernon City Schools for refusing to remove a Bible from his desk, where it has been sitting for 22 years.
Other charges were made by school administrators that John expressed his personal faith on other occasions, after a torrent of public reaction to their censorship of the Bible.
John should have the right to express his faith at school to the fullest extent of the law. And we are confident that the law is on his side.
Since the acquisition of Egroups by Yahoo, Yahoo has been shutting down Adult Groups at an alarming rate. They've almost all but stopped there advertising of Adult Groups. This petition is for all the people who would like to be able peruse the Adult Groups and not have more of their First Amendment rights taken away. For some people, this is their right to be able to step into a fantasy world which in societies eyes is wrong. Who makes these rules anyway? It's not wrong to want to delve into the alternative lifestyles world. Some find their only way to do it is through this medium. As long as no laws or Yahoo's user policy is not being violated, the groups should be left alone.
