Musings of a Recovering Lutheran: The deadly danger of ... a T-shirt?
O LORD, God of my salvation,
         I have cried out day and night before You.
Let my prayer come before You;
         Incline Your ear to my cry. 

Psalm 88:1-2 (NKJV)

The deadly danger of ... a T-shirt?

William Swinimer will now be allowed to wear his Jesus T-shirt. In some parts the Western world, that is increasingly a major victory for religious freedom.

Key quote:

The T-shirt, which says Life is Wasted Without Jesus, is not the issue, said Nancy Pynch-Worthylake, superintendent of the South Shore regional school board. The issue is how to express one’s beliefs without offending others. “For us, it never really was about the one shirt,” Pynch-Worthylake said Friday.
Contrast that school board's near-hysterical reaction to a T-shirt with the name of Jesus on it to the bland acceptance of using school facilities to conduct Muslim prayers.

This is why I have a hard time taking the separation-of-church-and-state fundamentalists seriously. It is too easy to find examples where they ignore the use of schools for non-Christian activity (Muslim prayers), or actively promote religious beliefs (global warming cultism, evolution).
