Courts, Schools, and Christianity

Agape Press is reporting that a federal judge in Ohio has reversed a lower court ruling on the wearing of christian tshirts to school.

(AgapePress) – A federal judge has told an Ohio school district it can no longer bar a middle school student from wearing a t-shirt with a Christian message.

Judge George Smith has ruled that Sheridan Middle School in Thornville violated the constitutional rights of student James Nixon by prohibiting him from wearing a t-shirt bearing a quote from the Bible verse John 14:6. The front of the shirt reads: "Jesus said, 'I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.'" The back of the shirt contains the statements: "Homosexuality is sin. Islam is a lie. Abortion is murder."

I'm glad that James and his parents were willing to take a stand. Remember, Christians are citizens too.

While I'm on this subject, isn't it interesting that those who claim to be tolerant, all-inclusive, and all-accepting are unwilling to practice what they "preach"? For example, they claim we must tolerate all religions; however, Christianity is not tolerated by them. I think that conservatives are much more tolerant. For example, I believe that Jesus is the Way, Truth, and Light. He is the only way to heaven. Since that is what I believe, that is what needs to be shared. People who believe differently will have to suffer the consequences if they choose not to belive. That is their own personal choice…a choice they should be allowed to make.
