Texas High School Student Told Rosary Is 'Gang Symbol'

FOXNews.com - Texas High School Student Told Rosary Is "Gang Symbol": "Ruiz and her mother, Taire Ferguson, said they had no idea that rosary beads were a gang symbol. Police, however, are well aware."

Ruiz apparently doesn't know that you don't wear Rosary beads. Rosary != jewelry.


UPDATE: The idiot here is me. I was always taught not to wear a Rosary as jewelry. Apparently it's OK as long as it's primary function is devotion and not bling. Thanks to Paul for setting me straight

There's nothing wrong with wearing a rosary, as long as it's done respectfully. (Not the way many celebrities do it, that is.) Many orders of priests and nuns do it regularly. If done properly, it's actually a worthy practice.

Hmm....I was always told never to wear them. Have to check that one.

I've heard the few question come up a few times, and always heard it said that as long as it's done with respect, wearing it is okay.

If the crucifix is nestled between two breasts that have been pushed to neck level, then it's not a good idea to wear it. But over a shirt without much cleavage, you should be fine.

It's a weird day when I'm not the hardass Catholic in the conversation, isn't it?
