Boy Sent Home From School For Dressing In Jesus Costume




Apparently dressing up as a witch, harlot, devil, demon, etc is okay… But dressing up as Jesus is offensive.

A Paramus middle school student was sent home Friday after he came to school dressed up as Jesus for Halloween.

For a few hours, Alex Woinski was the messiah of West Brook Middle School, but like the real Jesus, Woinski was condemned, so to speak.

“Sort of like a new remake of what supposedly happened,” Woinski told CBS 2.

Decked out in sandals, a robe, fake beard and thorns, the 13-year-old joined 500 other students at his school’s Halloween celebration, and on this day, he was the chosen one – to go home.

“It was offensive to some students,” Woinski said, when asked what school officials told him the reason for being sent home was.

Woinski says he wore the costume because friends say his long hair makes him a Jesus lookalike, and were not offended by his costume.

The school says thes costume was a disruption and denies its religious nature had anything to do with it.

“I don’t think I overreacted,” Principal Joan Broe told CBS 2.

Broe said too many students were drawn to the costume, and that was reason enough.

“Children were [asking], where is the boy who is Jesus Christ?” she said. “It was disrupting the education process.”

  1. Sad, and how much education really happens on Halloween or any day that they have celebrations in school?
