Ohio's gay teen sues school for banning 'Jesus Is Not a Homophobe' tee

Washington , Wed, 04 Apr 2012 ANI

Washington, Apr 4(ANI): A gay Ohio teenager has sued his high school for not allowing him to wear a t-shirt bearing the slogan 'Jesus Is Not a Homophobe'.

Seventeen-year-old Maverick Couch told the Cincinnati Enquirer that officials at Waynesville High School said he could not wear the garment at school because it was 'indecent and sexual' in nature.

"I don't think the shirt is sexual at all. I don't know how they can say that. I don't think it's indecent," The Fox News quoted Couch, as saying.

He hoped to wear the shirt to his school in Waynesville, 40 miles northeast of Cincinnati, on April 20 for this year's Day of Silence, an annual protest against bullying organized by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network.

Two Waynesville students reportedly complained when Couch wore the T-shirt.

Christopher Clark, Couch's attorney, said his client tried to resolve the issue out of court for several months and filed his lawsuit as a last resort.

The suit asks US District Judge Michael Barrett to order the school to allow him to wear the shirt.

Couch is also seeking attorney fees and 'nominal' damages, according to Clark. (ANI)
