It was not the Rosary that got the kid suspended, it was his attitude.

School officials are accustomed to the norm on the Rosary, carrying it one's pocket or purse. Unfortunately, today's culture uses Rosaries around the neck as gang symbols. Most priests I know would have told the kid to put it in his pocket so he wouldn't be confused with the gang bangers.

The kid was probably told to take it from around his neck and put it in his pocket where it belonged. I'm assuming the kid got his "Irish" up and said something unfortunate that got him suspended.

So he got suspended for his attitude not his piety. The whole altar boy thing is a red herring.
