Only Religious Jewellery Allowed in UK school - FSM ideas?

Postby comrademike » Tue Jul 29, 2008 8:19 am

A UK judge has ruled that those of religious observance are now given special dispensation to flout school rules.
The ruling allowed the Sikh girl in question to wear a special bangle that signifies being handcuffed to her god, overiding the school rule of wearing no jewellery except earring studs and wristwatches.

Full story here

I call upon his Noodleness and all followers to suggest appropriate jewellery that all in the UK FSM church can wear...given that it will now be defended by this case.

Jewelry with skull and crossbones, and noodle-themed jewlery. I think a necklace design containing HIs Noodly Goodness is called for.

We could also suggest sporting a Pirate-fish pendant or something of the like.

Why don't we just have the eagles drop the ring into Mount Pasta? It sure would make things a lot easier.

There is a serious point to this.

Unlike crucifixes, hijabs, pirate pendants etc, the wearing of a steel bracelet is a fundemental part of the Sikh identity, like men wearing the turban, and hence in this specific case, the judge ruled that the school couldn't ban it because it is part of the girl's racial identity. As crucifixes, veils, pirate pendents etc are not compulsory parts of the reigious and racial identity of that group, it's still OK for schools to ban them.

I suggest an appendum to the FSM bible that makes it compulsory to wear pirate pendents at all times with no excuses.

Don't forget the knives. Interesting security issue, for schools and everything else. And no, I'm not bringing this up to say we should be allowed to carry a cutlass and pistol around (but man would it rock.), or to suggest that Sikhs are crazed killers (the ones I've known were great people). Just always found it interesting.

I will grant the fact that wearing this bracelet may be mandatory to her religion (not race, Sikh is a religion, not a race). I'm in the US Army (hey, I'm against holy wars for oil, also) and we have rules for wearing religious articles. they may be worn, but only under clothing where they can't be seen (this rule does not reply to nonreligious jewelry, which may not be worn). That allows the religious identity without boldly allowing the religious to have "rights" that others do not. Surely it wouldn't negate the girl's religious identity to wear long sleeves?

You would have thought but this is Britain.... to suggest that the judge would have probably been done for racism or something equally stupid
