I heard about this in

I heard about this in the faculty room today: a teacher at a Catholic school in Bergen County was forced by his administration to remove a button that said "War is Not the Answer". Rather than comply, he quit. I guess no one in the administration there is concerned with repeated messages from THE POPE stating exactly the same thing. The principal's explanation? "I encourage teaching that (anti-war) point of view because it is a teaching of the church," Fusco said. "I just feel a button is not a vehicle to teach." What if a student or teacher wore a crucifix pin?
