Picture of Jesus

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

I just read an article about a school that was forced to take down a picture of Jesus in a school hall that contained other pictures of important historical figures. More than that the school is going to pay $95K to the ACLU and Freedom From Religion Foundation to offset their court costs! Here is a link to the article:

The reasoning was that it is unconstitutional and causes “permanent and irreparable harm” to students. How do we know that? No one will conclusively say if movies, music, TV and violent video games have any relationship to recent violence but a painted picture of Jesus produces irreparable harm? Incredible! Let’s get those researchers studying the various forms of entertainment and see what they find out.
