      I'm not sure I'm buying this and there has to be more behind the story.

      Until it's verified by a legitimate source take it with a grain of salt.

      I don't think there is any reason to doubt it. A policy against gangsta-type chains might have been instituted for some reason in the past, although this seems like a policy that would be on shaky legal grounds, but this person could just have fallen afoul of it. But neither do I think we have to protest everything that comes along! Just tucking the cross in for a half-hour and vowing (to oneself) not to return to the place again would have been adequate, I think.

      One of the stories said it was a posted policy. Presumably at the gangsta chain, but somebody figured this one matched.

      I totally forgot about gangsta-type chains! I live in the country near the Amish so that's not common here. It makes sense to have dress code policies though.

      You're right. As Christians we shouldn't force the issue with some things to the extent that we become an embarrassment and cause drama. Fighting over a necklace isn't the same as saying we aren't Christian if we put it under our shirt. It's not like the guy was being asked to step into the furnace like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.

      I feel like there is more to the story than what we are reading about. Maybe the guy was acting like a jerk and they wanted him to leave and were trying to find a reason to get rid of him. I don't know. But, it sounds strange to me
