Grade 12 student suspended for Jesus shirt

    A Grade 12 student in Nova Scotia has been suspended for five days for wearing a T-Shirt to school that says "Life is wasted without Jesus" and says he will continue to wear the shirt to school once the suspension is over. Is this political correctness run amok, are his rights being trampled on, or were correct actions taken?

    Ms. Pynch-Worthylake is a moron, and anyone who is offended by the t-shirt should not be allowed in public schools. Celebrate differences or don't go to public schools.

    Never miss a chance to be Outraged for Jesus.

    Just wait until a kid wants to wear a shirt saying "Infidels are damned to hell without Allah."

    Back of the shirt has to be in French.

    I believe Nancy Pynch-Worthylake was also a character name in a Month Python sketch.

    Good for the kid. Nothing offensive about that shirt.
