I am not religious at all, and I don't support any of them.
But what happened to free speech or whatever it's called? I mean, I hate those Jesus this Jesus that shirts, but doesn't the kid have a right to display his own opinions or ideas? Why censor that?
No, this is precisely the reason that slogans are banned on shirts in many schools, because of the sort of issues that wearing slogans like these creates.
If this kid is allowed to display his own opinion towards Jesus on his shirt, what would stop another kid wearing a shirt supporting Osama Bin Laden, Neo Nazi groups, or Mitt Romney (let the flaming begin!)?
This is why slogans are banned in school. The kid isn't being censored due to the content of his shirt, he's likely being censored for wearing a slogan of ANY kind, period.

Weird how American "liberals" never make similar mention of the t-shirts and symbols of other Religions. How many hindu "Om" t-shirts do we see around? I dont mind liberals per se, but the American "liberal" is so spiteful and hate-filled that one has to speculate whether MKUltra or some other sinister brainwashing program is behind these "democrats".
In the United States, the term is an offshoot of the phrase, "wall of separation between church and state," as written in Thomas Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1802. The original text reads: "... I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church and State." Jefferson reflected his frequent speaking theme that the government is not to interfere with religion.

Christianity is slowly being outlawed in Canada, and this is just one example. For a country who's national anthem contains the phrase "God, Keep out Land", this seems rather vengeful against the faith of Christians, while laws/rules are being passed municipaly, provincialy, and nationaly to permit greater rights to immigrants and the religious ideologies they bring with.

And what if the student wore a shirt that said: Satan Rules?
Religion does not need to be a part of public school.
And? You think that should be illegal too?
