Obviously, parents were enraged.
While the shirts don’t directly violate the district’s dress code, Assistant Superintendent Brad Pollitt said complaints by parents made him take action.Please. We can't have teenagers running around with the theory of evolution on their chests. Next thing you know, they will have the theory of relativity on their pants, then all hell will break loose and they'll start having analcourse.
“I made the decision to have the band members turn the shirts in after several concerned parents brought the shirts to my attention,” Pollitt said.
Pollitt said the district is required by law to remain neutral where religion is concerned.Because, in Texas, evolution is considered "religion."
“If the shirts had said ‘Brass Resurrections’ and had a picture of Jesus on the cross, we would have done the same thing,” he said.
Please, please, please become your own country.
