According to the BBC –
A 16-year-old girl was not discriminated against after she was banned from wearing a “purity ring” in school, the High Court has ruled.
Lydia Playfoot was told by Millais School in Horsham, West Sussex, to remove her ring – which symbolises chastity – or face expulsion.
The school denied breaching her human rights, insisting the ring was not an essential part of the Christian faith.
Miss Playfoot said she was “very disappointed” by the decision.
She said the ruling would “mean that slowly, over time, people such as school governors, employers, political organisations and others will be allowed to stop Christians from publicly expressing and practising their faith”.
The judge said the school was “fully justified” in its actions.
The Beeb goes on to report that:
Miss Playfoot was one of a group of 11 girls at her school who joined a movement called the Silver Ring Thing.
Rights and Religiosity – got this one right…
Will keep an eye out for the full ruling, if and when published, so we can see exactly what the judge has to say.
