An atheist student dressed as Jesus for "Fictional Character Day!" The school staff found it offensive and made Jeff Shott removed his outfit. I think the young man should get an A for creativity, but he really should learn not to offend people of religion. I question whether he would have dressed as Mohammad or Buddha. Why do people think they can offend Christians when they don't have the nerve to offend other religions?
According to "The Friendly Atheist, "A couple of months ago, Summit High School in Spring Hill, Tennessee held a â€œFictional Character Dayâ€ in which students could come to school dressed as their favorite fictional character. Like the Mad Hatter. Or Darth Vader. Or SpongeBob SquarePants. Jeff Shott came dressed as Jesus."
I'm glad this was meant to be a joke, and that young Mr. Shott found his mocking of Jesus and Christians so amusing, but I'm glad the staff at Summit High School addressed the issue. No one should make fun of others of any religion, race or creed. Let people be, and believe or disbelieve what you will.
