Vodka Zombie: It's like they just don't get it.Weird.
b8zlbubba: The district's lawyer is actually salivating about the hours he will get to bill on this one.
TommyJReed: What is a "Hi-Y" club exactly?FTAAfter huddling with attorneys in closed session the board said the portrait belongs to the student group that put it up, the Hi-Y club. It says it will allow other student clubs to hang portraits appropriate to their organizations.
mechgreg: Is it this picture?[crossfitkyle.com image 239x300]Because I don't think that Jesus should be around school children either.
factoryconnection: This was a news snippet and didn't satisfy. I'm sure there is an article out there with a picture of the portrait and maybe more background info. Off to teh Googles...
Galvatron Zero: As an atheist...I really don't understand what the big deal is. It's just a picture. Seriously. To some people, it's the son of god and makes them feel good. To others... it's just a picture.There's a church on my street!I demand it gets torn down!It offends my senses!If a picture of Jesus offends you, you have other issues./overactive sense of self-entitlement being one...9_9
Dr Dreidel: // "The Inverted-V Club"
Deep Contact: I didn't know they had camera's back then.
TommyJReed: What is a "Hi-Y" club exactly?
Dr Dreidel: // "Zimbabwean Cartography Club"// (that one might be a bit esoteric - Google a song called "Map of Zimbabwe". SFW, I think)
Mija: You cannot restrict practice of religion seperation of church and stae is not the same as restricting religion. Look up "lemon test" at firstamendmentcenter.org. It is dumbed down enough that you should understand it.

Oldiron_79: The Courthouse in Cumberland co TN has a statue of the Flying Spaghetti Monster on its ground from where some ACLU troll tried sueing then they said they would gladly put up any statue that any religious group wanted to pay for.
vudukungfu: I say keep all things equal here.Just put up a picture of Muhammad right nest to it.Problem solved.
Wicked Chinchilla: This.Plus its not like anything is "funded". its a student group. If it was bought, paid for, and managed by the school, and other clubs/organizations were prevented from hanging there's you have a problem./chill, all the unnecessary squealing does is fuel unjustified persecution complexes
jonohull: Yeah, except it's the opposite of that.
