Personally, I think this T-Shirt is awesome but apparently a high school in Canada thinks otherwise.
A Canadian high school student serving a suspension for wearing a T-shirt that says “Life is wasted without Jesus” says he’ll wear it again when he returns.
Grade 12 student William Swinimer, 19, is due to return to class Monday after a five-day suspension last week by the Forest Heights Community School in Nova Scotia, west of Halifax.
He had been wearing the T-shirt every day and was cautioned before and given a 12-day in-school suspension earlier this year.
School Board Superintendent Nancy Pynch-Worthylake told The (Halifax) Chronicle-Herald the T-shirt could be offensive to those with other beliefs.
“If it said ‘My Life is Wasted Without Jesus,’ that would be fine,” because that would be more personal, she said.
However, Swinimer said he’s not backing down when he returns to school.
“They say that it’s hate speech and that it hurts people’s feelings, but I don’t hate anybody,” he said. “I’m going to stand up for my rights as a Canadian citizen.”
The school board is consulting with a human rights expert on the matter, the newspaper said.
Hate speech? What? Really? I know Canada is different from the United States but has Canada fallen that far down the politically correct, anti-Christian hatred abyss that they would think that the saying “Life is wasted without Jesus” is a “hate crime” just because they claim it might offend some students? If we go by that logic, how come it isn’t considered a hate crime when the school offends and discriminates against this Christian student?
This is the absurd reality of progressivism – if you don’t agree with them you’re either bigoted,racist,intolerant or you just committed a hate crime because you promoted Jesus-loving Christian values on a T-Shirt. But this is an example of liberals’ intolerance for a point of view that differs from their own. Liberals are the most intolerant of all.
Good for you, William!! Don’t back down. Keep wearing the shirt and stand up for your rights as a Canadian citizen. God Bless.
