Jesus Is a Distraction?

This picture is of an eighth grade student, Alex Woinski in New Jersey. He dressed up like Jesus to go to the school on Halloween. Alex’s mother is Catholic and his father is Jewish.

The school superintendent indicated that the reason he was sent home was that he did not want a costume that was a “distraction.”

The father indicated that last year the student went to school dressed as Santa Clause and all was well.

So, it is Jesus that is a distraction.

I am not advocating dressing up like Jesus. I’m not sure I would do that. The point is that we are asked to tolerate diversity as long as it is the right type of diversity.
