Part of an Oregon bill expected to be signed by the governor protects religious freedom but forbids teachers from wearing attire to class that is significant to their religion. "It's kind of unfortunate that anyone, regardless of whether its Sikhs or Jews or Christians, can't express their religion neutrally," said the minister of a Sikh congregation. Officials behind the law cite the impressionability of children and the need to keep religion out of the classroom.
