This is ridiculous. Just as I said it should be fine for the Sikh to wear a dagger provided it's under his clothes as part of his faith I see no problem with this student wearing a rosary. It shouldn't be on display either because then it's more of a fashion statement than an adherence/reminder of faith but forcing the kid to remove it is going way overboard.
“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

I am actuallyvfrom Amarillo and even went to this school when I was younger. First of all allow me to share the fact that gangs here in Amarillo are like 5th graders who write on walls for fun. The biggest gang problem we have ever had here is a riot of people trying to get into the circus. For the law enforcement here to compare the gangs here to gangs across the nation is pathetic and only a way to try and cover their asses as well as the school. The fact that the boy resisted he had a reason to he didn't do anything wrong. I would have Done the same thing. I wear a rosary outside of my shirt and I ain't catholic but I believe it protects me. Thus excuse is pathetic so let me see if they arrest the pope on his next visit for wearing his rosary outside of his clothes. There will be more done about this and protests will be upcoming as well as lawsuits and more this boys civil rights have been badly violated and no more will this stuff continue to happen. The law enforcement and school officials will be the ones in jail or broke when this is all said and done. I for one plan on helping this boys family and although I am not a lawyer civil and family law studies is something I love to do.

Goddamn kids these days
Bringing religious items to school, what the hell is wrong them?
It's almost as if he thought there was religious freedom in this country.
