School District Allows Sikh Student to Carry Dagger
#1
A school in Auburn, Washington, a Seattle suburb and not far from the site of Friday's school shooting, has decided to allow a Sikh student to carry a ceremonial dagger.

School officials said that there are religious exemptions in state and federal "zero tolerance" policies in allowing the student to carry the weapon.

If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

Hey, it sets a precedent. Someone should get them to live up to their open-mindedness or expose their hypocrisy.

I guess under this same blanket... muslim kids can wear ceremonial suicide vests to detonate whenever they serve pig products at lunch, christian kids can carry swords and slaughter all the non-christians during a game called 'crusade" at recess. and practitioners of voodoo can send their kids in with live chickens to sacrifice during study hall.

I'd just tell the school my religion is based on the god of second amendment land and my kids have to carry their rifles at all times to fend off evil tyrants.

Kids with daggers have freedom of religion, but pastors who don't want to do a gay marriage ceremony......

You know, this is why we just need the government OUT of local affairs. Honestly....let local districts, local towns, have their people vote on their own topics. If a district wants Sikh students carrying knives, let the town vote. If the town has a lot of that religion in it, then let them go for it. Those who don't like it can move away. Similarly, if a predominately Christian town wants to display a manger scene at Christmas, they should be able to do so. If a district wants teachers carrying concealed weapons, they should be able to as well (and a few do, I realize this.)

When the government has their fingers in every piece of the pie, then this type of hypocrisy occurs.

The kirpan was instituted by the Sikh after persecution and execution by Muslims. It Is a reminder that they, unlike more non-violence embracing Hindus, are prepared to fight against Muslims. Officially, they say "everybody", but that's code for Muslim.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW

That's exactly how I read the 1st amendment,

"congress shall pass no law respecting an establishment of religion" it was designed to be left in local hands

Reading this to me means the federal government can do nothing about religion, it can't recognize a religion to give it tax free status or anything else and that is where the prick is, if it's challenged by the church they will loose their tax free status..

They're not touching that with a 10' pole

but isn't funny how the system is tolerant of other religions though?

Exactly. Key words are "shall pass no law". So, displaying a manger scene is not passing a law respecting a religion. It is a local decision by local citizens. There is no such thing as "separation of church and state" in the Constitution. There is only that the federal government cannot pass any laws putting one religion above another. I don't think there are such laws, nor have there been, pretty much ever.

Why would they? There is nothing in the Bible which requires Christians to carry guns (though prayer and evangelizing are, and they are TOTALLY banned in schools) plus it gives them the moral ground to show how peaceful Muslims are--despite Sikhism not being Islamic.

Personally, I have no issue whatsoever with a Sikh carrying a dagger to school, a Muslim in traditional garb, or a Jew wearing a yamaka or the latter two having the option of a halal/kosher meal. All provided, of course, the Christian kids (or any others) are allowed to show signs of their own faith.
