Suspended Nova Scotia student defiantly wears ‘Life Is Wasted Without Jesus’ T-shirt (To read the story, visit National Post)
Well it seems like the school was trying to handle it well. This kid seems like a douche. Wearing it a couple times in defiance still says something. His continuing just proves he’s an ass. He’s not proving any point except that he views his religious beliefs superior to other students. Fuck that noise.
I read a few other articles on this story and I’m laughing at the people in the comments and even some of the authors. There’re a lot of people trying to claim that the school was out of line for suspending him and then threatening suspension for the rest of the school year, and that the students that complained about him were “obnoxious and self-righteous”.
Those students were well within their right to complain about the fucking shirt. I would offended, too, and I can almost promise you that this smug little shit would have complained to the principle if an Atheist sank to his level and wore a t-shirt that said something like, “Life is Wasted If You DO Believe in Jesus”.
Instead, they took it to the proper authority and the simple solution was to have him wear a different shirt.
Clearly no one read the part where he was TOLD to put on a different shirt and he adamantly refused under his misguided belief that he was “protecting” his “freedom of speech”. These same people obviously didn’t read the other part where it he CONTINUED to wear this same shirt throughout the week despite the school’s orders, so every time he wore it, they punished him - 3-day I.S.S., 5-day A.S.S., and now suspension for the rest of the school year.
The shirt was no longer the problem. Blatant disregard for authority OVER the fucking shirt was the problem.
I don’t know about any of you fuckers, but when I was in school, our Dress Code disbanded shirts that displayed religious, non-religious, and political beliefs altogether. It also disbanded shirts that were just as offensive (cursing, sex, drugs, alcohol, violence, bigotry, hate speech, etc.).
S’what happens when you go to a fucking public school. The school was well within their rights to suspend him for not doing as he was told.
So, yes, I agree - this guy does seem like a douche.
