Just read THIS.
Teachers demanded Samantha Devine remove her chain and tiny crucifix despite allowing Muslim and Sikh pupils to wear symbols of their religion.
Her family have vowed to fight the decision “all the way” claiming it discriminates against Christians.
. . . .
Mr Devine, who attends St Thomas Of Canterbury Catholic Church in Gillingham every Sunday, insisted: “It’s just political correctness gone absolutely mad.
“It’s a harmless, very small crucifix and she wears it as a symbol of her religion.”
Samantha was asked to remove her necklace in front of sniggering classmates as she left the morning registration session on Wednesday morning.
The necklace was just visible underneath her open-necked blouse, worn with a blazer in accordance with the school’s dress code.
The Devines were told she should remove her chain because it breached health and safety rules.
Go read the whole article.Â I know the liberals will say it isn’t discrimination, and I’m looking forward to seeing how they’ll explain the “danger” of a necklace versus the “safety” of turbans and bangles.
However, I feel quite certain that if it were, let’s say, a Muslim student who insisted on wearing a necklace with some Islamic symbol on it, they (the liberals and their political action robot, the ACLU)Â would all be up in arms supporting that student’s right to express his/her religion.Â
I wear a necklace every day, and I alternate between two pendants – a cross and a “C”.Â I think I’ll start wearing the cross exclusively.
Political correctness is all about double standards and appeasement.
Tiara-tip to Janette.
