Beading a Rosary with gang colors? The Latin Kings gave been doing this for decades. Real Catholics only need one color of beads... some large, most small.

This is one reason Martin Luther pounded his theses to the church door.

/The one about different colored rosary beads must have gotten torn off.

The Catholics are very protective of their turf, they will even crucade over to other "hoods" and try to "jump-in" the locals.

They are one of the most dogmatic and violent gangs the world has ever seen.

I guess you didn't see the picture accompanying the article, in which all the beads on the rosary are one color?

Students specifically weren't told about the markers, "because they morph," Equinoa said. "You can never get a solid target."

First rule: If you can't get a solid target, DO NOT ATTACK.

Seriously, just how brainless do school administrators have to become before we can replace them with highly trained orangutans? (Orangutans don't ask for $100K/yr. in salary and benefits.)

Yep, those kids that wear crucifixes and hang out in groups sure make a scary gang. . . .

The beads on his necklace aren't one color. And rosaries are not supposed to be worn as necklaces. What he's wearing isn't a rosary, or at least one I've ever seen.

I'd have suspended the one kid for 5 days, too. He was told to go to the office for defiance and instead he went...home.

They should have left the gang stuff out of it and just suspended him for that.

These kids are late to the party - people have already been suspended for wearing stars of David because it's part of a gang sign (never mind that the kids in question were Jewish, we gotta have ZERO!! TOLERANCE!!).

How long before we are all in govt issued uniforms?
and as soon as that happens.. some genius will say it's gang related because every crime that occurs is by someone in this uniform, and then we'll be right back where we are.

Is there no room for common sense in Political Correctness?

No. It contains the seeds of its own destruction.

PC (arguably) starts with good intentions but ultimately defeats its own purposes.

Prior military and got out because I was sick of their inability to change with the times...amongst a host of other reasons.
Also, in another week, I'll be done working for the DoD as a whole.. taking a position as a partner in a small business in Wisconsin.

This is why religion in schools is a bad idea. The fundie Christians are happy to have it - until a Catholic starts praying the Hail Mary or a Jew starts praying Shema Israel.

I think this would be more of an Oregonese Inquisition.

Why would you wear a symbol of imperialism, oppression, torture, and execution to represent a man of peace?

The best have a gradated series of beads terminating in a ring for a firm grip.

It's not; it's to represent religion.

One of my son's friends in sixth grade got in trouble for wearing his sweatshirt hood up when he walked into school. It was 38 degrees outside. He was accused of being in a gang.

Ridiculous

The cross was an instrument of torture and execution - how can this be used to properly memorialize a man of peace?

i never understood it either. i mean, what does dying slowly, hung up on a wooden cross have to do with jesus anyway?

That is not what it is supposed to symbolize. It is just unfortunate that a couple thousand years of humans "getting it wrong" have corrupted the perceived understanding of what it symbolizes.

/Completely confuse any of you yet?
