Way to go A.P.! You stand your ground. GOD BLESS YOU! It is time for Christians to take back the world. If the school will allow Satan, they have to allow GOD! One does not exist without the other.

If you allow any religious symbols, you have to allow them all. This is why religion can't be tolerated in government. You are entitled to your own beliefs, Just don't shove them down my throat. Before everyone blasts back calling me an atheist, I am not. I just believe religion is a personal thing.
I do believe there should be a social studies class that teaches children the basic differences in religions. It would be helpful in understanding the politics of the world. You can't really teach many historical events without explaining the religious reasons why these governments were murdering each other. Christians,Muslims and Jews have murdered or been murdered for their beliefs. That is historical fact.

As far as this individual case, if these other symbols are in the school, then he has a lawsuit. He is being discriminated against. You can't allow buddhist symbols and not allow christian symbols. I hope this student follows his beliefs. Perhaps, a christian private school would be the place for him.
