Girl can’t wear a necklace that resembles a rosary

Omaha, Nebraska – A sixth-grade girl said she was told that she can’t wear a necklace that resembles a rosary because it violates the dress code at the Fremont Public Schools. Elizabeth Carey, 12, said the school adopted a policy last year banning the necklaces. “The principal said I couldn’t wear my necklace at all because gangsters were wearing it,” she said. Omaha Catholic Archdiocese Chancellor Rev. Joseph Taphorn said it’s disheartening. “I don’t think Christians should have to forfeit what is the symbol for the love of Christ because a few people want to misuse that symbol,” he said. He said the corruption of something as beloved as the rosary disgusts the church. more
