Did you hear about the Nova Scotian grade 12 student whose High School principal suspended him for wearing a shirt promoting Jesus?
Well, if you didn’t, you probably will.
A student in Nova Scotia, named William Swinimer, loves Jesus so much he wears the above shirt to school day after day for several weeks. Teachers and students cry that it’s offensive. The Principal warns the student not to wear the shirt to school. He continues to wear it, citing “Jesus and I are dating. And he wants me to wear the shirt every day.”
Jesus has been surprisingly quiet about their relationship, which is expected from a non-existent deity who is more powerful than a zillion suns.
Regular reading Jude, who sent me this article as a recommendation to post, says that he doesn’t mind that William wore this shirt, as long as he can wear a shirt that says “God doesn’t exist.”
I agree with Jude.
But where I have to throw my hands up and shake my Fosse hands is when a student wears the same goddamn t-shirt to school for “several weeks” in a row.
Does this kid have no respect for his classmates? Is he looking for a target to be painted on his head to be the kid who only has ONE shirt.
William Swinimer is asking for it, if you ask me.
I could give two shits if Swinimer has a love affair with an imaginary friend.
Hey, Swinimer, do yourself a favor and fill your closet with variations of Jesus love shirts.
Hey, Nova Scotia, pull your collective heads out of your asses and let William be. He’s got every right to wear that stupid shirt. Just not every day. The stink alone has got to be offensive.
And rightly so!
Now that I’ve slammed this situation into the lockers as hard as I can, what do you think?
