Students face discipline for offering Bible message
Several Westfield High School students who handed out candy canes with religious note to their classmates the week before Christmas are bracing for possible suspension from school after they return from winter break tomorrow.

The students, who were forbidden by school administrators to distribute the candy and messages, are accusing school officials of violating their rights to free speech and expression.

''No matter what they do, we're not backing down,'' Stephen Grabowski, 16, said yesterday. ''We really believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, and we're prepared to fight. They picked the wrong people to step on.''

But school administrators have said the issue is not religion. They said they are adhering to a policy that bars students from passing out non-school-related literature on campus. ...

...with you Mike on this one.

I am the first to say that as a young beleiver, i did some silly things in college, in my case i had a "Join the spiritual revolution,follow Christ" sticker on my jacket back.Boy,was i naieve!
Maybe better , i had John 3:16 written on my breif case.?

...the Lord will teach His own, zeal should be channeled in the right way,and that is not with gimmicks,or the pragmatism of explaining the "Xmas" message, and violating the school rules.

They will have to learn to turn the other cheek,and that the world hates the gospel,you cannot make it "user friendly".

Maybe in this instance, a humble acceptance of the ban, and apology, will do wonders for their testimony, than standing upon their "rights".
Anyone agree with that? What would you do ?

..i have a burden to pray for these folk, and it is good to be reminded that all things are lawful ,but all things are not expedient.

O Lord, bless those who seek to witness for thee, help them, and guide them, so thou art glorified, and the seed of the Word of God, find root in many hearts this day, may many such as should be saved be added to thy church.

Doyle, Christian candy canes? the 'J' stands for Jesus? When inverted, symbolizes a shepherd's staff? The white is for Jesus' purity, and the red is for the blood he shed? This silliness is OK, but Christian wrestling is unbiblical? They're both the same thing!

AMENDMENT I TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA:
Congress shall make no law respecting an
establishment of religion,or prohibiting
the free exercise thereof;or abridging the freedom of speech,or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government
for a redress of grievances. It certainly appears that denying students the right to hand out candy canes with printed words about Jesus(at Christmas,no less)falls under at least two violations of the 1st amendment.First and foremost is the violation of "prohibiting the free exercise"of their religion. Jesus told Christians to "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." I would think that would include the schoolhouse, the courthouse,the public square,and all the people there, including school students. If the sodomites can promote their propaganda to preschoolers with such garbage as "Its Elementary" and "Heather has two Mommies",surely under our constitution(which gaurantees religious freedom)our school students should be able to hand out Christian tracts during a Christian holiday.And the teachers also have that constitutional right!!! Secondly,there is the matter of printed material. You ought to hear the ACLU squawk over this travesty.But NOOO
