A seven year old Pittsburg girl has been suspended from school for warning a classmate he would go to hell:
Brandy McKenith, a pupil at Sunnyside Elementary in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, reacted after hearing a boy use the phrase "I swear to God".

McKenith's classmate told the teacher that Brandy had told him "You're going to go to hell for swearing to God" and the youngster was sent to the headteacher's office.

Pittsburgh Public Schools spokeswoman Pat Crawford said the student code of conduct prohibits profanity, but does not provide a definition of what profanity is.

Hmmm, it sounds like the wrong kid is accused of being profane. Typically, any behavior is tolerated other than one that indicates consequences.
