That Itty-Bitty Cross Will Get You Locked in the Principal’s Office in Most School Districts

And you get SUSPENDED FOR LIFE if you bring an aspirin to school by mistake and get caught with that sucker.

But “ZERO TOLERANCE” just got the oddest sort of religious waiver in Michigan

Michigan School District Allows Sikh Students to Wear Religious Dagger to School

A Detroit-area district says it’s allowing Sikh students to wear a small, religious dagger to school, reports.

The decision by the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools reverses a ban put in place in December after a fourth-grader at a Canton Township elementary school was found with a dull, 3- to 5-inch kirpan.

The kirpan represents a commitment to fight evil in the Sikh tradition. The dagger is a religious symbol that baptized Sikh males are expected to carry.

As Anne Coulter notes below, baptized conservatives are “expected” to cling to carry guns and Bibles, but that argument hasn’t worked so well for them.

    My religion says that I have to carry a sub-machine gun, at least 5 full magazines and several grenades at all times. No, really!

    I’ve always wondered if the 0 tolerance policies apply to teachers and staff. I’d like to see a teacher fired for having Midol in her purse.

    OTOH, It’s good when a Gurkah carries a knife.

  7. Kathy Kinsley says:

    P.S. I have no probs with a Sikh carrying a knife either. I just think the rest of us need to add guns to our religion(s). And scream loudly about religious discrimination (if you can’t beat them, join them).

    Funny, mojo, my religion says the same thing!

    Grenades, yeah, gotta have grenades! I worship at the alter of the Full Metal Jacket.

    Heh. You guys are taking “Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammo” to interesting places.

    When I attended Catholic High School we had an after school rifle club.We fired guns at a firing range.Now Christians are relegated to third world status and third world immigrants are given priority staus due to self-hating politicians and people afraid to declare the truth.”What is truth” Pilate said..

    What’s that Baptist thing about swords again?

  13. tree hugging sister says:

    Scots can’t carry Dirks…or Sams or Harrys, for that matter, Diptera. They’d put their eyes out.

  14. JeffS says:

    I thought Scots preferred claymores?

  15. Kathy Kinsley says:

    And bagpipes. Anything can be a weapon if you use it that way. 😛
    The Irish would agree.
