No Christ In These Classrooms

 An Ohio school district voted to remove a painting of Jesus from a high school after the American Civil Liberties Union threatened a federal lawsuit.

The painting, which had depicted Jesus in a field with lambs, had hung in John Glenn High School since 1971 to commemorate a teacher who had passed away in front of her class. The painting, which hung in the school office, was not visible from the front counter, according to The Columbus Dispatch.

East Muskingum school district Superintendent Jill Johnson defended the painting, saying that it had not hung in the school to promote religion but was there to remember "the life of an individual spent educating students."
