    Judge Says NC School Can't Bar Girl Over Pierced Nose

    RALEIGH, N.C. (Oct.8) - A federal judge ordered a North Carolina school to admit a 14-year-old high school student suspended for wearing a nose piercing she says is part of her religion, and the teenager was on her way to science class Friday afternoon, her attorney said.

    The Iaconos belong to a small religious group called the Church of Body Modification, which sees piercings and tattoos as religious devotion. The church has 3,500 members nationwide and was incorporated in Pennsylvania in July 2008, according to the lawsuit.

    I have a religion.

    It consists of daily sacraments of Double Cappuccino with an occasional sacrifice to the Chocolate God.

    Well now I know how to keep the electric company from trying to chop down my trees. I'll just join a Celtic tree worshiping church. My baby oak trees just became sacred. :)

    We finally came to a compromise. I gave up some of the hardwoods ( a few hackberries and a burdock ) but managed to get a written statement saying that everything else out there was not ever subject to clear cutting. I'm not happy about it, but for the moment it was the best I could do. I did however, get with my state representative who is working on legislation to stop the eminent domain abuse and to make them define easements after subdivisions are built. If I can take their blanket easements away from them, I'll consider it a victory. Thanks for your advice. It helped me save 75% of what I had.

    Glad the advice was somewhat useful...I have a feeling the co-op is going to wish they had left your hardwoods alone. :thup:
