Anti-religion foundation asks for removal of Jesus Christ portrait from Ohio middle school
The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a nonprofit association based in Madison, Wisconsin, is pressuring Jackson Middle School in Jackson, Ohio to remove the image of Jesus which was given as a present from the Hi-Y Club. On January 2nd the association reported the image as unconstitutional and is asking for the removal: “If a large portrait of Jesus were to hang in Jackson Middle School, an objective observer would have no doubt that it had the district’s stamp of approval,” wrote Rebecca Markert, a staff attorney for FFRF. She described the placing of the image as “an egregious violation of the First Amendment.” She demanded that officials “remove the picture at once.” Jackson City Schools Superintendent Phil Howard told WKKJ radio in Chillicothe, Ohio that he doesn’t want to take the picture down: “I’m certainly not going to run down there and take the picture down because some group from Madison, Wisconsin, who knows nothing about the culture of our community or why the picture is even there, wants me to take it down,” “A lot of things are permissible so long as they are student-led or student-initiated,” Since the picture was a present from a student group, the man thinks it is alright with the First Amendment of the American Constitution: “It actually hangs there amongst many other pictures,” he told WKKJ. “It’s in the middle of what we call our ‘Hall of Honor.’”
