Zombies and the First Amendment

Until recently, had you mentioned Zombies to me, I would have immediately thought of one of my all-time favorite, classic rock hits.

“She’s Not There” was the great hit by the band the Zombies. But now, when I hear Zombies, I’m thinking about this.

Seems that a group of protestors dressed as zombies protested at the Hamilton County Ohio courthouse this week to voice their support for Jasen Dixon, who is facing $13,000 in fines for assembling a zombie nativity scene on his front lawn.

I doubt the founding fathers had zombies on their minds when they enacted the First Amendment, but I like to think they’d be rooting for them in this case.
