Assault on Christianity not just About Christmas, NJ Boy Sent Home Dressed in Halloween Jesus Christ Costume


Dressing like Satan for Halloween good … dressing like Jesus Christ, bad.

Halloween schools has always meant that children could dress up in their Halloween costume for the day. Children would traditionally come to school dressed as ghosts, goblins, witches and ghouls. Needless to say the costumes have today have come a long way from the ones from It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.



Now a days the children come to school wearing their favorite character in a TV show or movie. The costumes have become elaborate and detailed to say the least. It appears from the trick or treaters that came to the house last night that pirates, fairy princesses, Star Wars storm troopers and Clones were among the most popular. Let us not forget witches as even the moms walking their children throughout the neighborhoods were dressed in witch attire. So with all the costumes that are allowed in school why is it that a school would disallow one of Jesus Christ and send the child home?

Alex Woinski, an eighth-grader at West Brook Middle School in Paramus, was sent home from school on Friday because of his costume.

Alex, who has shoulder-length brown hair, wore a white robe, a red sash, sandals, a fake beard and a crown of thorns.

His mother says Alex was told he could keep the costume on if he removed the beard and crown of thorns, but he declined.

Superintendent James Montesano says the district doesn’t want students wearing costumes that could be distracting.

Alex’s mother is Catholic, and his father is Jewish.

He recently celebrated his Bar Mitzvah and is studying Bible scripture, according to his mom.



The school stated that the costume was distracting. As opposed to what, the other Halloween costumes in todays society like THIS, THIS or THIS? It has become acceptable to allow sexy kid Halloween outfits; however, for some reason a costume of Jesus Christ spooks a school board.  The school claims that it was not the religious nature of the Jesus costume that was the problem. That will be for all of you to decide and discuss. Personally, it is just one one example of an attack on Christianity where a school now thinks that Jesus Christ is more spooky and frightening than a costume of the Devil.

      Kind of think that the kid should not have been sent home. If the picture is accurate, his costume doesn’t seem all that distracting to me. For Pete’s sake it’s Halloween dress up. But, just to think along the other lines, supposed the kid had dressed up as Jesus on the Cross, complete with bloody holes in his wrists, feet and a thorny bloody crown, in a loin cloth. Would it be religious discrimination to send him home in that case.

      In any case, I’m not sure what to say. Was the kid mocking Christianity and thus offending the Christians. I mean many Halloween costumes are created as jokes about the figures (ie. Nixon, Clinton, GW Bush etc). Would those kids be sent hoe then.

      I’m sure the kid wasn’t mocky Christianity. This is how our schools are today. Scared of God, but for the wrong reasons.

      i’m going to stick up for the school on this one. not that the costume was distracting but it really opens the door for mockery & then people are offended.

      i had some pre-teen trick-or-treating last night as a priest asking me to “donate candy to the church”. it was a lame attempt at humour that seemed offensive to me & i’m not even catholic.

      when my kids were small their school resorted making the children have their costume plans pre-approved by their teacher. it did save a lot of hard feelings.

      You don’t think he was mocking Jesus? You think this shows the school attacking on Christianity? Are you insane? Was a Jesus costume popular in your church on Halloween?

      Some Christian friends of mine feel that Halloween is a witch/pagan holiday and do not let their kids dress up….I think the celebration does come from the Celts as does Yule which came in the month of December. We now call it Christmas. The early Christians molded some of their holidays to come on pagan holidays …. helped them get more early converts. Having said this I think it quite possible that some Christians might find a costume depicting Jesus not in good taste.

      I really doubt a child would dress like Jesus to mock him but instead to show people that he’s not ashamed of his savior!America always talks about freedom of speech,religion&all beliefs, yet Christians are constantly attacked&too many people believe in everything that is immoral& love sin!Sin will never love you!Nobody will ever love you more than JESUS CHRIST!
