Board votes to keep Jesus portrait in Ohio middle school
An Ohio school district decided Tuesday night to keep a portrait of Jesus hanging in the school where it's been 65 years, denying a federal lawsuit's claim the portrait's display unconstitutionally promotes religion in a public school.

I'm glad the Satanic Jews disguised as "The American Civil Liberties Union" and "Freedom From Religion Foundation" were repelled from their attack on America's history and traditions.
If you Satanic Jews love Atheism so much go to Israel, where you will be right at home.

The picture is coming down in Jackson they just like the news coverage and want everyone to know how stupid they are. What about the people on the board what are you people thinking? What about that old X teacher who attends the meetings and has other interest under his belt?

the people on the board are thinking that they mostly have issues going on in their own life, and the last thing they need to do is actively campaign for something that 3 unliked people in this town push.
on the other hand, simpleton statements like the first one simply make this be an issue that WILL NOT rest until the picture comes down- not because people are offended by jesus, but they are more offended by people saying nonsense in jesus, god, or any other religions name.
iuno bout the xteacher but i do know an awful lot about the people who started this mess, and it has little to do with anything "religious" as much as "cutting off a spigot", so to speak.

They did the same thing in Medina, Ohio several years ago. The school wanted to fight the ACLU but didn't have the resources. The ACLU has just about unlimited resources, so cities and towns would have to drain their funds just to fight them.
It's a real shame what's happening in our country. Like who cares if there's a picture of Jesus Christ hanging in the school? Who is it offending? Who is it bothering? Don't people have better things to do with their time and money?
Schools are supported by the taxpayers of their community, and if those taxpayers want the picture to stay on the wall, then it should stay on the wall.

thats an AWESOME question.
its funny how the people who DO care are the people who love a religious symbol, that, be it real or fake, means love, kindness, teaching one another... etc., in their mind.
and the people who dont care about those points are the ones with the unlimited funds that want to take it down , not out of love, not out of "showing who they are", but out of stigmatizing the other group.
its also interesting to me that through various degrees of interpretation the very laws of a "just, equal" nation are how said pictures are always removed.
but i do agree with your last line, however, from this to obamacare, the bigger always gets what it wants these days. one of the largest reasons of decimation in this nation, i believe, having the most powerful call come from the farthest away as possible from the actual voices crying for solutions.
its interesting how the most vehement defenders on both sides kill their causes, everytime, if you follow these types of things.

They can vote however they like, if it's unconstitutional it will be removed. The Bill of Rights is not subject to majority rules, in fact that is the reason for having a Bill of Rights in the first place.
The law applies to everyone, including misguided Christians that have little understanding of the how and why of the Establishment clause.

I'm in favor of the Satanic Jews who love Atheism. I mean, how great is our country it that two religious belief systems and non-belief can come together to form a mash up of complete nonsense the world has ever seen? Personally, I can't wait for our annual Yiddish cross-dressing competition where each contestant points out the inconsistencies in the others' outfits. What a blast!
