Cue The Outrage: Eighth-Grader Suspended for Wearing Rosary

Is there

no place

left in Obama's America for a Christian to practice his or her religion?!?!

KHOU has the story of a Fort Bend ISD eighth-grader who has been suspended because she wore a rosary to school.

A, ummm, rosary to honor her late, great Catholic grandmother. Awkward, FBISD!!!

Jonae Devlin, 14, tells the station she started wearing the beads shortly before Christmas Winter Break, and a school official told her it violated the district's dress code.

"She said, 'I'm going to give you the choice to take it off or be suspended,' and I said, 'You might as well suspend me,'" Devlin told us.

The district says some rosary-wearing can be tied to gang activity, KHOU says.

Well, there was once a little "gang" of men called "disciples," FBISD, and they followed a guy named Jesus. And He doesn't think much of your dress code, at least according to His followers, who are going to be professionally outraged by this.
