Rosary violates Nebraska school's dress code

A Nebraska elementary school has ruled that a 6th-grade girl will not be allowed to wear a Rosary around her neck, because the beads are identified as a gang symbol.
Father Joseph Taphorn, the chancellor of the Omaha archdiocese, commented: “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.”
