Seems one doesn't even need to say any words to have the Left's penchant for suppressing free speech activated; especially anything with even a hint of religion. The Henry M. Jackson High School wind ensemble wanted to play Franz Biebl's "Ave Maria". They had played it at the 'winter' (not Christmas) concert, and wanted to perform it again at graduation. No can do said the school, it's religious. A brave student, Kathryn Nurre, sued. This was just the music, no words. The Ninth Circuit Court supported the school's decision, not this music.
