Religious Discrimination

Published March 29th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

Bryan Killian, a high school student in North Buncombe, North Carolina was suspended for coming to school dressed as a pirate.

But the disciplinary action has provoked controversy – because the student says that the ban violates his rights, as the pirate costume is part of his religion.

Read about it in the Metro or the Citizen-Times.

This story is blowing up and I’ve been having a lot of problems keeping the server running. It’s currently #1 on Digg and Reddit.

I’ll have some updates and more information about all this soon.

    I notice torture devices hung on chains espsecially when they’re the big shiny showy ones round the necks of self-righteous “I’ll pray for you” morons.

    Do they wear those torture devices to intimidate us?
    Are they saying “believe in my God or you’re getting some of this”?

    I reckon so! It’s obviously to show other people what they believe, or you wouldn’t wear them or it would be ok to wear small ones, or them under clothing for convenience. And yeah I reckon its a threat – “look at what we did to this guy – and we like him – imagine what might happen to you….”
