Hey this girl is still in school and no piercing jewelry is allowed whether it is a fashion stament or a religious belief. if she said it is do to her religion, well then while in school take it off and once out of school put it back on. all she is doing is flaunting her religion in other students with other beliefs in their face. freedom of religion is something that should be private and not spread out for the whole world to see.

If my children are not allowed to wear their jewelry or even the hair styles they want??

Why should she? If the student and the parents signed an agreement for a dress code then that is what is should be.

Its the same everywhere... And you know it is true.. At a job you have a dress code, and you need to follow it or else you will find yourself looking for another job. And why is there a dress code well one simple word SAFETY!!!!!

Church of Body Modification??? Wow. Oh well, to each his own, right?

However, if the kid from New Mexico has to take his rosary off, then this chickie needs to remove her nose ring.

And it IS the same, because both the rosary boy and the nose ring girl are "expressing their faith."

Wrong....please reread the article...especially this section

[QUOTE="article"]
The Iaconos say the school system is ignoring its own dress code policy, which allows exemptions on religious grounds.[/QUOTE]

The school has already made exemptions for OTHER religions which means they are indeed singling her out. Now if there was a no exemptions for any religions rule plus a no piercing rule then your argument would hold water. But as of now unless the school redoes their policy sorry they are discriminating.

Its funny seeing the the religious biggots come out of the wood work...because her church isnt the mainstream catholic, christian etc church its automatically invalid and dismissed.

ya' know this is starting to piss me off ...

WHERE is all that tolerance crap they are forcing down our throats about a child's preferences??

So - it's fine to accept same sex relationships with all that tolerance they teach my kid ... but a body piercing, or wearing an American flag tee shirt is wrong?

NO ONE see this as going over the line??

I believe this was another quote by you:

I know I do NOT respect people to talk shit about people they do not personally know

Looks like you are lacking a little self respect. Sorry about that.

No, I am actually very active in voicing my opinion. My problem with you is that I really don't like bullies.
