    Re: Sikh students can wear dagger in Plymouth-Canton schools, but with modifications

    I carried a 3 inch pocket knife at my school. I'm blown away that this kind of thing irritates anyone. I mean how many children in the United States have been the victims of pocket knife attacks? There has to be a statistic out there. I bet they are far more likely to be molested by one of their teachers than to be attacked by a fellow peer with a pocket knife.

    Would students who were not Sikh be allowed to wear these things to? If they allowed everyone to wear one these to school then sure no big deal.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Huh? I could have swarn they allowed them. Let me go back and reread.

    He is required by his religion to wear this at all times. It's short and dull and can't be removed from its sheath... (the blade, for those of you who aren't thinking with your big heads! ) I don't understand the problem here. We're supposed to respect the practice of religion in this country, so long as it doesn't break the law or infringe on the rights of others. This doesn't do either.

    Yes, and rather than people using it as a means of staying "and its ridiculous that they ban 2" pocket knives in some schools" we instead have people going "OMG! They lettin a non-Christian do something. PC! PC! PC!"

    This incident has nothing to do with a Christian student claiming the teaching of evolution to be offensive. A better comparison to it would be a Christian student wanting to carry a full-sized wooden cross everywhere on Easter, it being disruptive to the school, and then the school saying that he can't bring a full-sized wooden cross to school but can bring a small wooden cross and even wear it as a necklace.

    One doesn't have to do with the other.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
