Washington - (Dissassociated Mess): A Supreme Court hearing today will evaluate the God-given rights of rabid fundamentalist religious educationalist nutters and their Diabolical Liberties Union supporters to gag students' First Amendment rites as satirised by the display of a Bong Hits 4 Jesus banner.
Joseph Frederick, a former high school student whose witty observation that the Winter Olympics torch relay passing by his school in January 2002 was akin to a giant bong eliciting religious rapture, is being challenged by his school board that says his un-Godly fun-poking is a sacriledge too far.
As a South Park sketch it would have raised the roof. But
Clinton special prosecutor Ken Starr is fighting the good fight for the Bush-backed Juneau High, because as all God-fearin' Christians know There Is Nothing Funny About Jesus.
However, the Supreme Court must brace itself for newly-discovered archaeological evidence from the Qumraan site of the Grateful Dead Sea Scrolls extolling the virtues of indigenous marijuana production among the locals under the Roman occupation of Judea.
A portion of preserved first century AD graffiti from the Qumraan citadel walls has been found and translated as being one of the Holy Beatitudes.
It reads Blessed Are the Weed Fakirs for Theirs is the Kingdom on High.
The Defense may rest on that one.
