Cornyn supports families in religious expression case

The Bryan-College Station Eagle > Texas & Region: "U.S. Sen. John Cornyn has filed a court brief in support of families who sued a North Texas school district claiming religious censorship.

The case started when a third-grader in the Plano Independent School District was prohibited from handing out candy cane pens with a religious message attached at a class 'winter party' in 2003.

Cornyn charged in his brief, filed Friday in federal court in Sherman, that the Plano district 'has gone to great lengths to outlaw Christmas and any of its vestiges from its schools.'"
