I consider myself an open minded person but this is over the line! For a child to dress as Jesus Christ for halloween instead of a witch, devil or axe murderer, is outragious in my opinion! This kid deserves jail time, if for no other reason than to deter other children from attempting something so morally reprehensible and disrupting the "education" of our children!

School Boots Boy Over Jesus Costume

posted: 3 HOURS 30 MINUTES AGOcomments:

School officials in Paramus, N.J., weren't impressed when a student chose to pose as the Chosen One on Halloween.

Alex Woinski, 13, told WCBS-TV he was inspired to dress up as Jesus Christ because his friends say his shoulder-length brown hair makes him resemble the prophet. The teen completed the getup with sandals, a robe, a fake beard, a sash and thorns.

The principal of West Brook Middle School said Alex Woinski's costume was a distraction to other students.

The principal of West Brook Middle School said that the boy was sent home because the costume was disruptive to other students. "Children were [asking], where is the boy who is Jesus Christ?" principal Joan Broe told WCBS-TV. "It was disrupting the education process."

Alex said school officials told him the costume was "offensive to some students."
Alex, whose mother is Catholic and father is Jewish, has developed an interest in religion, according to WCBS-TV. He recently celebrated his Bar Mitzvah.
"I think the whole freedom of speech and expression has definitely had a damper put on it, and this is proof of that," said Kim Woinski, Alex's mother.
Alex went trick-or-treating as Jesus on Friday night.

I'm assuming that your whole post is laden with sarcasm. LOL

He was sent home because he dressed as a major player in the history of mankind (even the Jews believe he was a prophet, just not the Son of God.)

What has our society come to these days?

Our kids are, in general, so poorly educated in general, they probably had no idea who the kid was supposed to be anyway...

More importantly, who is actually offended by this?

Sounds like the principal was!

I have to agree with other posters though in that if you don't want a distraction remove it all from the school. Maybe if we stopped having so many celebrations in school then we could catch up on the education system in this country.
