For all of the non-Catholics, I found this in wikipedia. I may explain some issues surrounding the rosary. This is a very important symbol of devotion in Catholicism, as well as in the Anglican and Lutheran Churches. As a Catholic, I find his wearing of the rosary beads in this fashion to be insulting and disrespectful. This is, however, a free country, and he is entitled to do as he pleases. You can see the whole article at: The Rosary (from Latin rosarium, "rose garden"), is a traditional popular Roman Catholic devotion and also an Anglo-Catholic devotion (see also Jesus Prayer and Prayer rope). The term denotes both a set of prayer beads used in the devotion and the devotional prayer itself, which combines vocal (or silent) prayer and meditation centered around sequences of reciting the Lord's Prayer followed by ten recitations of the "Hail Mary" prayer and a single recitation of "Glory Be to the Father"; each of these sequences is known as a decade. What distinguishes the Rosary from other forms of prayer is that, along with the vocal prayers, it includes a series of meditations. Each decade of the Rosary is said while meditating on one of the "Mysteries" of redemption. These mysteries were finally standardised in the 16th century, and while there has been some disagreement on them (the final mystery is sometimes the Last Judgment) the earliest sets bear a remarkable resemblance to those still used. Rosaries worn outside of religion Rosaries or rosary-like necklaces are often worn for non-religious purposes as a fashion or jewelry item, and are sold in different variations in popular jewelry and clothing stores. Such ornamental use, especially the wearing of a rosary around the neck, was heavily popularized by singer Madonna in the early 1980s and has experienced a come-back in recent years. Wearing a rosary around the neck can be considered disrespectful if the person wearing it doesn't affiliate with the Christian religion. Ornate or medieval-style rosary sets are occasionally featured in goth fashion, particularly among romantic Goths or for ironic contrast to an otherwise dark outfit. Wearing of a Rosary that one actually uses to pray is neither uncommon nor sacrilegious in various Catholic-adherent cultures, and was a common practice in the Medieval and Renaissance periods, particularly among monastics (monks and nuns). Rosaries are also worn hanging from or looped over a belt, particularly with some religious habits, pinned to and hanging from a shoulder or neckline, or wrapped around a wrist or arm as a bracelet. Some Christians feel that it is sacrilegious for a non-believer to wear a rosary around the neck. Previously the Roman Catholic Church after Vatican II Council has stated that wearing of the rosary around the neck by both Christian believers and non-believers is very disrespectful,[citation needed] although many saints have worn their Rosary around the neck, and in the Secret of the Rosary, it is mentioned that a person put his rosary round his neck to keep devils away from him.

nothing pisses me off more than seeing someone who is not catholic wearing rosary beads. They don't even understand the meaning of it. And this also goes out to jessica simpson, usher, 50 cent, britney spears all those non catholic celebrities who think its cool to wear a rosary.
