The Supremes to Hear "Bong Hits 4 Jesus!"

And this before my morning coffee...

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A high school student's controversial banner with the words "Bong Hits 4 Jesus," which led to his suspension, will be argued before the Supreme Court, in an unusual free speech dispute.

The justices Friday accepted an appeal from Juneau, Alaska, school board officials, after a federal appeals court allowed a lawsuit filed by the family of Joseph Frederick to proceed.

He was suspended in 2002 after he unfurled the sign -- a reference to marijuana use -- just outside school grounds when the Olympic torch relay was moving through the Alaskan capital, headed for the Salt Lake City Winter Games.

"Bong," as noted in the appeal filed with the justices, "is a slang term for drug paraphernalia."
We must ask ourselves, what would Jesus do?


  1. Hi Cara. Kristen from Maryland here. Did you hear the story about the homeowner I believe it was in Colorado or somewhere in the west who hung a Christmas wreath in the shape of a peace sign on the side of her house and the HOA board President who fined her $25 a day for each day she keeps it up? His reasoning: it offends the 3 other residents with family in the military and is a symbol of Satan. I'll email you the link to the article from if you're interested.

  2. WWJD? He would take a few hits. Two hits and pass, though...that's just the Christian thing to do.

  3. You are so right LJMan, Jesus would not bogart the doobage.
