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.
