Michigan School District Makes Exception For "Religious" Weapons

What next, allowing Muslim students to fight non-Muslim students until they convert or pay jizya? That is a religious requirement, after all.

A Detroit-area district says it's allowing Sikh students to wear a small, religious dagger to school, MyFoxDetroit.com reports.

...The kirpan represents a commitment to fight evil in the Sikh tradition. The dagger is a religious symbol that baptized Sikh males are expected to carry. (Source)

Now, I have nothing against Sikhs. They get a bad rap because they are often mistaken for Muslims. But to open the door to any religious weapon in school is a dangerous precedent in my opinion. In this day and age when even wearing rosary beads can get you expelled, how is a weapon, in any way, justified?
