Freedom from Religion Foundation wants Ohio school to remove Jesus portrait

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation is warning a middle school in southern Ohio about a Jesus portrait hanging in its halls.

The local school district’s superintendent of schools says he won’t remove the picture without an order from the school board or a judge. He says the display comes from a student’s initiative, which makes its permissible for display.

The portrait hangs in the school’s “Hall of Honor,” among other faces.

The Madison group sent a letter to Jackson Middle School last week saying it represents the school’s endorsement of a particular religion, possibly alienating non-Christian students.
