I Disagree with the Court's Ruling
I am shocked and appalled with the ruling of the court. I would expect the court to uphold the basic rights of the citizens of this country. The first amendment clearly protects a citizen's right to worship how they choose. This ceremonial dagger is a form of worship to the Sikh religion. Sikh's cannot worship properly without the possesion of a kirpan. The Sikh doctrine states it is meant for self defense and defense of others. To say this small, dull, AND sheathed kirpan is a threat to the children and teachers of the Titanville School District is preposterous. It is also insulting to suggest that Sikh's carry this with ill intent. I hope in the near future this decision is overruled. I cannot picture an America where people are still persecuted because of their beliefs.
