This is so over the top I wonder if these two have ahistory of headbutting. Also, not defending the educrat’s thuggish behavior, Iknow gangs in the Yakima area have used rosaries as gang identifiers. Does anyone know if Latino bangers have started to do the same in the Spokane area?

A rosary is not jewelry.

It does seem to fit the “Dangling chains of any kind” category.

This student may or may not be a Catholic but he is definitely not devout. So I would not put this in the religious rights category.

A Rosary is not jewelry and should not be worn about the neck as a necklace. It should be carried in the pocket and be brought out for prayers and then returned to the pocket.

Beam me up, Scottie.

When was atheism declared the Official State Non-religion in the politburo or the supreme soviet?

I mean, if we are now the USSA, let’s at least cross the t’s and dot the i’s, and do it by the book.

is the principal right or wrong to ask Corral to remove a rosary from his neck?
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

There is NO religiously, politically, culturally, or First Amendment neutral solution!

1) Removing the rosary has NON-neutral political, cultural, religious, and First Amendment and freedom of conscience consequences!

2) Allowing the rosary has non-neutral political, cultural, religious, and First Amendment and freedom of conscience consequences.

3) Both wearing and not wearing is not an option! Either choice #1 or #2 must be made.

So?....When will conservatives “get it”? A RELIGIOUSLY, POLITICALLY, and CULTURALLY NEUTRAL EDUCATION IS IMPOSSIBLE!!!

ALL GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS ARE FIRST AMENDMENT AND FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE ABOMINATION!

Solution: Begin the process of privatizing all education. Move toward complete separation of school and state.

( And Yeah! I am shouting. I am exasperated that so few conservatives “get it” or see the threat that government K-12 schooling is to our very existence as a free nation.)

If the kid were a practicing Catholic, he would have said “Yes, sir” and put the rosary inconspicuously in his pants pocket or backpack. It is to be prayed, not warn as a personal fashion statement.

As a Catholic, I find it insulting to wear a rosary around the neck. I am on the Principal’s side. I hope the kid gets zero out of this.

American Catholics do not wear the rosary like a necklace. Latino Caholics do. I don’t know if the kid is a punk or not but any teacher/principal who threatens to put a knife anywhere a kid of mine is in deep kimchi and I don’t mean lawsuit either.

Devout Catholics don’t wear rosaries around their necks. Student should have carried it in his pocket.
