Eighth-Grade Boy Sent Home From School for Jesus Christ Halloween Costume

This makes me sick! Jesus is a distraction but all these satanic costumes are just fine? Just another excuse to push Jesus out of the public schools. God help us!

PARAMUS, N.J. —  Dressing up as Jesus Christ for Halloween turned out to be a problem for a northern New Jersey boy.

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.
