If true, would the Wichita public schools system publish the opinion that as a bunch of bigoted hate mongers, Christians and Jews are not normal and should be rounded up and executed? Would they publish an opinion piece saying black students should be stripped of their rights and dignity and be executed without trial? Does anyone believe for a second that this would happen in the Wichita school system? Of course not, and the law very specifically says that "libelous, slanderous or obscene," material or material that brings about a "substantial disruption of the normal school activity" is NOT protected. I guess stoning gay kids to death doesn't seriously disrupt school activity in Kansas. It's all in a days work, apparently.
Students wanting to fight this abominable "opinion piece" and the actions of the school district in supporting it, should write an article about the dangers that Reich-Wing Christians pose to this country, and demand their execution. See if district officials have the same concern for free speech when someone wants to stone them to death.
In the meantime, President Obama needs to go on record condemning this school district and demanding the resignation of those who condoned and justified its publication. I won't hold my breath.
