Arrested for wearing Rosary

It says rosaries are gang symbols. I dont buy it. This is a manifestation of hostile secularization.

In my city there is at least one gang - the Surenos - that displays their colors via rosaries. The school district prohibits the wearing of rosaries for this reason.

And I understand that. Still…isnt it sad that gangs would desecrate rosaries and make them symbols of something evil?

As much as I’d like to agree with you, unfortunately, there is a gang in my area that uses the Rosary as it’s primary symbol. They have utterly perverted our beautiful gift.
