Brickbat: Phil Robertson Understands

Zachary Golob-Drake won first place in a
speech contest at his elementary school in Tampa, Florida, and as
the winner, he was slated to deliver the speech to all the fourth-
and fifth-graders at the school and compete in a regional speech
contest. But an administrator told him there was a problem with the
speech, which focused on how religion has sparked conflict and even
mass murder. She said the religious
 had to come out before he could speak to the
assembly. When Golob-Drake said he wanted to think about it, she
threatened to take his first-place ribbon away and not allow him to
compete in the regional contest. School officials say Golob-Drake
misunderstood, it wasn’t the religion they wanted him to take out
but the parts about mass murder.
