School - Jesus Portrait
CINCINNATI (AP) — Two groups that sued to stop the display of a Jesus portrait in an Ohio school district's middle school now want the portrait removed from the wall of a high school where it was moved last month.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio and the Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation filed a federal lawsuit in February charging that the portrait, which was then displayed in the Jackson City Schools middle school, unconstitutionally promoted religion in a public school. They filed an amended complaint Monday, asking the court to also prohibit display of the portrait in the high school for the same reason.
The portrait now is hanging on a wall alongside the high school's trophy case.
