W.Va. school board sued over Jesus artwork

Just thought I'd tee this one up.
Two civil liberties groups sued in federal court Wednesday to remove a picture of Jesus that has hung in a high school for more than 30 years.

I wonder what would Barak Obama think about this, given his recent defense of faith in public life. I'm a fence straddler. I'm all for people enjoying their faith, but I don't like one faith being imposed on another. A catch phrase I've seen lately says "I don't mind God, it's his fan club I don't like."

Either put up pictures of all religious leaders, or take them all down, is what I'd say. The big problem would be violating the Muslim prohibition against depictions of Mohammed, and finding a picture of Zoroaster.
