I'm sorry Void. I should be more patient with you. I'll try to be going forward.
He will not attend this school unless they are having readin', writin' and 'rithmetic, good old-fashioned academics. When they're having forums, when they're having other extra curricular activities, he will not attend that school. ... The taxpayer is paying for him to learn his academics as well as the other students and I am not standing for any of this stuff.
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
Canada? Enough said. But in reality, no worse than kalifornia or any other similar blue state.
Canada is pretty restrictive about what you can own, or even say in public. They do not possess the same freedoms we do.
so rights should only be exercised when deemed appropriate by the authorities... got it.
If I were a student, I'd look at the shirt & chuckle to myself.
I agree with the school. Wanna preach? Do it in church.
I could care less about the shirt. If you can be so offended by some words on a shirt, you need to grow a pair.
The fact that he annoyed people by preaching at them would bother me more.
Interesting point. These are high school students, many of whom are presumably still in the process of growing their pair.
(It kind of surprises me that the kid is 19, actually, although I don't know how school is set up in Canada)
Change the name to Mohammad and see what happens.
Send the troops. Save them from their ignorance.
I live in CA and sadly, it's just about as restrictive here.
You must live in one of those "free" States.
Yeah, I'm a little Jealous.....
Christian student suspended for five days for wearing a Jesus T-shirt
Right on! Was he suspended by his ankles or his thumbs. Oh no. I suppose that would only apply to a student wearing a T shirt saying "There is no God and if there was he would be disgusting" in a religious college.
I tried deciphering the above, and still can't make heads or tails of the message intended.
I was just being flipant and playing with the meaning of suspended which also means hung up, as in suspended from a hook. So then I was suggesting that a man wearing a Jesus T shirt should be hung up but then there is the problem of by what.
It was no more than a mild joke. I actually believe everyone should have the right to wear a Jesus T shirt even if I do find it distasteful.
If the shirt had said Allah (or any other deity) instead of Jesus, nothing would have been said.
This just in... http://www.cbc.ca/news/ .
Imagine that! The school board exercises common sense. What a drag for the exclusionists. Yea... what a drag. So sad.
On the other hand... how interesting. Freedom even of religion applies to even (shock) Christians. Very cool.
And so it should and must!
I believe in religious liberty for all people, even Atheists.
