Ohio Town School Won't Remove Jesus Portrait

Ad Feedback

School officials in one Ohio town are refusing to remove a large portrait of Jesus that hangs in a Middle School.

The painting was donated by a group of students to Jackson Middle School in 1947.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is demanding that the school remove it. They say the Jesus picture is an unconstitutional endorsement of Christianity.

About 300 people showed up to support the painting at a school board meeting Tuesday night. The district superintendent said it has historical significance and will remain.

The portrait hangs in the school's "hall of honor" among numerous other faces.
