Why is it some can have freedom of religion and some can not? In schools, Muslim women are allowed to wear their headdresses in school (which I agree with), but some religions are not allowed in public schools.
Let's say, for example, someone is a satanist. If they were to wear a shirt in school saying, "Hail Satan," the entire school would be after them! People say that is offensive to their beliefs so it isn't allowed. Is that not the epitome of hypocrisy?
If schools will allow some religions the freedom to bring their customs (clothing) into the building, why do some religions have to suffer?
If a Catholic was wearing a shirt about God, no one would mind, but if you are part of a smaller religion that might not be widely known and wore a shirt about your belief, people might complain it is offensive.
I am an agnostic, and I think if schools allow some religions to show their culture in school, they need to allow every religion that right.
