Aww, so this cute little chastity ring is integral to the X-tian faith? Well, why doesn’t everyone wear one? Lydia Playfoot (whose parents, incidentally, are key members of the British arm of the American Silver Ring Thing campaign group) thinks that eventually “school governors, employers, political organizations and others will be allowed to stop Christians from publicly expressing and practicing their faith.”
Schoolgirl loses ‘virginity ring’ fight – Peculiar Postings – MSNBC.com
A teenager whose teachers had stopped her wearing a “purity ring” at school to symbolize her commitment to virginity has lost a High Court fight against the ban.
Lawyers for the school denied discrimination and said the purity ring breached its rules on wearing jewelry.
They said allowances were made for Muslim and Sikh pupils only for items integral to their religious beliefs and that, for the same reason, crucifixes were also allowed. But it argued that the purity ring was not an integral part of the Christian faith.
