Good post. This sentence caught my eye: "In general, speech directed to minors (religious or environmental propaganda, etc.) has the same protection as speech directed to adults." But not in specific cases? Is that the Thomas exclusion?


Thanks, Larry. I think.

The exclusions are famous categories of unprotected speech. I had in mind obscenity in particular. Since obscenity does not enjoy general protection, governments can limit the sale of it to minors. If I read the Court right, the general exclusion has to be established before the age limitation can be upheld.
