Barnette that school officials violated the First and Fourteenth Amendments when they punished students and their parents for the students’ refusal to salute to the American flag.

Barnette and was against a state school order that public school students must participate in a patriotic ceremony. The issues of the Barnette case stemmed from the decision of the Minersville School District v. Gobitis case.
Perry Wheeler Dr. Livengood WRIT 101 10/13/2010 Is It Worth Telling Over the past sixteen years society’s views on homosexuals has greatly changed. This has had an impact on the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy due to the argument of freedom of speech.

It should be when you fight against people like these. I don’t know how the government allows these people to even live, they are causing damage and pain to soldier families and to gay people, the words are so hurtful and damaging that it can even lead someone to commit suicide or kill one of their members, which they’re putting themselves and their children in danger too.

Homosexuals and Blood Donation Introduction For the past 3 decades, homosexual men, or MSM’s (men who have sex with men), have been banned from donating blood in a number of countries. This has been an ongoing issue since the 1980’s AIDS epidemic, when it was “determined” that homosexuals were more likely to be affected. This is not necessarily true, and is a very prominent form of bigotry in today’s society. Homosexuality does not define a person, therefore people who live their lives in this way should not be denied the same opportunities as everyone else. Why They Are Not Allowed Since the 1980’s, gay men have been banned from donating blood due to the belief that they are more likely to be affected by HIV/ AIDS.
