This is too stupid to even comment on so just read the story below. But, it is too damaging a pursuit to leave unchallenged. The worse part is the harm being done to the people of Ohio and our country by this endless ‘war on religion’.

Folks, in addition to the ACLU, the other organization in this ‘war’ calls itself the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). The FFRF’s stated purpose is “to educate the public on matters relating to nontheism”. And the left says there is no ‘war on religion’?

The suit said that students and visitors to the school would “continue to suffer permanent, severe and irreparable harm and injury” from seeing the portrait. It didn’t seem to do any harm from 1947 until 1978 (when the FFRF was created).

Read the story and become incensed enough to take the actions necessary in your community to stop this ‘war” on one of the founding and enduring principles of America- freedom of religion.

An Ohio school district has agreed to keep a portrait of Jesus Christ off school property and pay a $95,000 fine in the face of legal pressure from the American Civil Liberties Union.

The Jackson City School District, located in Jackson, reached a deal on Friday after the ACLU, along with the Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation, sued the district in February, citing “unconstitutional” actions and charging that students and visitors to the school “will continue to suffer permanent, severe and irreparable harm and injury,” according to the lawsuit.

The picture had been hanging in Jackson’s high school since 1947 as part of a “Hall of Honor” display meant to highlight famous historical figures.

“The case could have ended before it began if the school had simply acknowledged that it is not the government’s place to endorse one specific religion in a public school that children are legally required to attend,” said James Hardiman, the legal director for Ohio’s ACLU chapter.
