Pennsylvania boy sues school for banning Jesus Halloween costume

First of all, where’s the ACLU in defending this child’s free speech? Doesn’t the ACLU represent everyone, or only those with specific political philosophies. Next, the actual parent and child did not bring the law suit. The suit was brought by the Alliance Defense Fund, ah Christian legal group. What’s a Christian organization doing with a legal group?

Pennsylvania boy sues school for banning Jesus Halloween costume PHILADELPHIA (AP) – A 10-year-old boy who said he was not allowed to wear a Jesus costume during his school’s Halloween activities sued the district, alleging his religious and free-speech rights were violated. The complaint, filed in federal court Tuesday, said officials at Willow Hill elementary school in Glenside, Pa., told the boy Oct. 31 he could not wear his faux crown of thorns or tell others he was dressed as Jesus. Principal Patricia Whitmire told the boy’s mother the costume violated a policy prohibiting the promotion of religion, the lawsuit said. Whitmire suggested the Grade 4 student, whose costume also included a robe, identify himself as a Roman emperor, the suit states.
