14. i know lots of people who have worn the rosary as jewelry... madonna and the eighties come to mind.
Edited on Fri May-21-10 12:39 PM by fleabert
not that i think the kid should have been suspended. either there's a rule, or there isn't- unwritten means there isn't. hope the ACLU fights this one. i love the aclu :-) as a non-catholic, i might wear them if they were pretty, but i am not a big fan of crosses in general.

edited because i can't spell properly on first attempt.
