    CANADA: School Student Suspended for Wearing Jesus T-shirt

    Christian Post; National Post (Canada)

    William Swimimer (19), a Canadian secondary school student, was given a multiple in-house suspensions and and a 5-day out-of-school suspension, which ends tomorrow (May 7th), by Forest Heights Community School, Chester Basin, Nova Scotia. The T-shirt can be seen at

    Please pray that the Father's will be done in this matter.


    Further details: (editorial comment with picture)
    Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, ‘For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.’ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
    Rm 8:35-39

    I kinda understand Mr. Swimimers' reasoning, to a point. But he also has to remember we are called to obey the law as well: instead of getting himself suspended (or perhaps expelled) maybe he should have tried a different tact.

    Re: CANADA: School Student Suspended for Wearing Jesus T-shirt

    There is no law in Canada saying a student can't wear a religious tshirt. The students at his school who were wearing "Hail Satan" t shirts were not suspended. This is a case of blatant discriminiation. We are not to obey all laws. For example many have died for worshipping our Savior, which was, and still is, a crime in many countries. Many have died for refusing to worship other gods instead. These people are not condemned in Scriptures. In fact, we are told "the world was not worthy of them."
    Per Hebrew 13:3 please "Remember those in prison":

    Acts 21 Now they have been informed about you that you continually teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn back from and forsake Moses...Therefore do just what we tell you....thus everybody will know that there is no truth in what they have been told about you, but that you yourself walk in observance of the Law of Moses.
