Canadian Student Suspended Over Christian T-Shirt

A 19-year old Canadian high school student was recently suspended for wearing a t-shirt that read “Life is Wasted Without Jesus.”

According to reports, the school stated that it had warned William Swinimer not to wear the t-shirt on numerous occasions. The superintendent opined that the shirt was problematic because it was directed at the beliefs of others.

Swinimer’s pastor, on the other hand, stated that the student felt like he was the one being bullied instead through the actions of school officials.

The Center for Faith and Public Life of the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada has sent a letter to the school district reprimanding it for its actions. In the meantime, Swinimer states that regardless of the punishment, he will continue to wear the shirt and stand up for his right to freedom of speech and religion, which he is entitled to under the Canadian Charter.
