Ohio School District Removes Jesus Portrait

Ad Feedback

An Ohio school district decided to remove a portrait of Jesus hanging in a high school building.

The portrait had been on display in Jackson Middle School since about 1947.

School officials recently moved the painting to a wall in the City High School alongside a trophy case where they hoped it could remain.

The American Civil Liberties Union and the Freedom From Religion Foundation petitioned the court again, alleging it violates the U.S. Constitution.

The school district fought back, but officials decided to take the portrait down because of potential costs of a federal lawsuit.
