Student forced to remove Ash Wednesday cross

A Utah teacher is apologizing after she didn't allow one of her students to wear a religious symbol at school.

KSTU-TV reports, like millions of Catholics and Christians around the world, William McLeod received an ash cross on his forehead to commemorate Ash Wednesday. But the boy's teacher made him wipe it off when he got to school.

"They put it on your forehead to show holiness," McLeod said of the ashes.

He was the only student in his class with an ash cross on his forehead.
