Further Proof That The Teachers of Tolerance Are Okay With Intolerance

The ADF (Alliance Defense Fund) may have finally found their headline case proving governmental discrimination against Christianity. Foxnews reports that they are now suing a school over a policy that bans the depiction of religious imagery in art class. Unless, they are saddled with the stupidest judge (thank God they are not under the purview of the 9th Circuit Court) in history the lawyers for ADF will have a cake walk.

The case in question a student received a zero because he drew a picture for class featuring a cross and the ubiquitous Jn 3:16 reference. The teacher in defense showed him a copy of the official class policy which he then tore up. Now it is not known if the kid knew the policy before hand, however, if he did I applaud him for making a stand. Why? Well it appears the school has a teacher actively teaching Hindu principles, there is a classroom featuring religious idols, the school has numerous demonic representation on display, features a statue of the Hindu goddess Shiva, and a replica of Michaelangelo's "The Creation of Man."

So, either the teacher is making a concerted effort independent of the school to suppress creativity in her class, or the school is willfully suppressing Christian religious expression, albeit unsuccessfully, while allowing pagan religious expression. I do think the school is going to lose the lawsuit (likely settled out of court) but it is unclear if this will result in a total ban (likely in today's climate of "tolerance") or allowing unfettered expression.
