Bible Terminology Banned at Missouri School

A middle school student was booted from class for a Christian T-shirt printed with "Jesus" and "Hell," yet every year, schools across America allow, and even encourage, homosexualists to promote deviant sexual behavior on "The Day of Silence."

A North Kirkwood Middle School student was pulled out of class and sent to the guidance office Wednesday for wearing a T-shirt the school deemed offensive and against school policy.

Michelle Ramirez wore a T-shirt with the words, "Jesus, He scares the hell out of you."

Kirkwood School District spokeswoman Ginger Fletcher said Thursday that the word "hell" was viewed as a profanity. Fletcher said that when students come to school in such clothing, they are asked to turn the clothing inside out, cover it with a sweatshirt or change into different clothing.

Principal Ginger Fletcher says, "Outside the school environment, it might be fine. But, anything within the school that is inappropriate, vulgar use of language might create a disruption in the school, we'll ask the student to modify the garment."

I got on the phone with Michelle, I told Michelle, ‘If you feel convicted to wear the shirt, you go ahead and put it back on'" said Michelle's Mom, Christina.

Michelle did change back and was separated from her classes to do her work elsewhere.

"It's federal law that you cannot ask a student to remove an emblem, insignia, or garment including a religious emblem. So, unless it is worn in an inappropriate manner, or creates a disruption within the school," Christina explained.

Michelle got the shirt from her youth group that specializes in extreme messages to promote their beliefs. She says she has worn the shirt to school about 30 times without a problem.
