Have you seen those people wearing their crosses to school? Have you ever seen them asked to take it off? No? Me either. However, a friend of mine has been asked to remove a pentagram before. (wiccan/pagan, not satanic, though they should be able to display their faith, too) I preface this by saying she's not particularly religious, and that she just happened to like the necklace. Anyhow, it was a normal day at school, when a substitute teacher approached her, asking her to remove it. "Why? I'm entitled to my own beliefs." "Because it's offensive." What happened to freedom of religion? That teacher had been wearing a cross, as were numerous girls in the class. This wasn't catholic school, it was just a public school, and she was asked to remove a symbol of faith. Since when is that okay?
Freedom of Religion?
