'We Love Jesus'

A Catholic School Principal sentences a group of students for chanting 'we love Jesus' at a recent basketball game to sensitivity training. Chant was deemed anti-semitic.

Uh... what? That is ridiculous. While on the one hand, Jesus' name should not be used as an insult against those who do not believe in Him. (Something about the Lord's name in vain or something)
On the other, "sensitivity training" for high schoolers? Get real.

Sensitivity is not naturally present in a lot of high school students. Their brains haven't completely learned forethought yet.

It seems to me, their religion classes need some improvement, if they think it's ok to use Jesus' name to assert their superiority. So much for teaching Christian humility.

About 3 years ago I dropped into a black hole – four months of absolute terror. I wanted to end my life, but somehow [Holy Spirit], I reached out to a friend who took me to hospital. I had three visits [hospital] in four months – I actually thought I was in hell. I imagine I was going through some sort of metamorphosis [mental, physical & spiritual]. I had been seeing a therapist [1994] on a regular basis, up until this point in time. I actually thought I would be locked away – but the hospital staff was very supportive [I had no control over my process]. I was released from hospital 16th September 1994, but my fear, pain & shame had only subsided a little. I remember this particular morning waking up [home] & my process would start up again [fear, pain, & shame]. No one could help me, not even my therapist [I was terrified]. I asked Jesus Christ to have mercy on me & forgive me my sins. Slowly, all my fear has dissipated & I believe Jesus delivered me from my “psychological prison.” I am a practicing Catholic & the Holy Spirit is my friend & strength; every day since then has been a joy & blessing. I deserve to go to hell for the life I have led, but Jesus through His sacrifice on the cross, delivered me from my inequities. John 3: 8, John 15: 26, are verses I can relate to, organically. He’s a real person who is with me all the time. I have so much joy & peace in my life, today, after a childhood spent in orphanages [England & Australia]. God LOVES me so much. Fear, pain, & shame, are no longer my constant companions. I just wanted to share my experience with you [Luke 8: 16 – 17].

Peace Be With You
Micky
