Highland Park High School in Illinois craps all over the First Amendment

Halloween costumes are fine at Highland Park High School in Illinois.

I easily can imagine the halls full of figures like Michael Meyers, Freddy Kreuger, and other sicko characters from slasher flicks.

Costumes are OK — unless you dress up as a First Century Jewish man who was brutally executed by the Roman empire, who is at least remembered as a spokesman for loving one’s neighbor as oneself.

This from Reason magazine’s Brickbats blog:

Highland Park High School in Illinois allows students to wear costumes to class on Halloween. But when Mashon Sanders showed up as Jesus, officials pulled him out of class and made him change. They said some teachers found the costume offensive.

Let’s call this “Coercive Separation of Church and Individual.”
