Under Pressure, Va. School Removes Commandments

Ad Feedback

A Virginia school district has voted to remove a ten commandment display from its high school.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against the Giles County School Board, claiming the display at Narrows High School was an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.

U.S. District Judge Michael Urbanski then ordered the Giles County School Board and the ACLU to work out a deal in mediation.

The board has now voted to remove the commandments from Narrows High School. School officials will submit their agreement to the court.

The legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia said removing the display from the school will make it more welcoming to students of all faiths.
