I'm only a little torn by this. I don't much care if this portrait stays up or is taken down.
Of course, the folks who are fighting for this likely would be fighting against a school club which tried to put up a portrait of Buddha.
What to do with Jesus in a public school?
From the piece:
Never miss a local story.
Bob Eisnaugle, an art teacher and adviser to the Hi-Y service club, said that the group of about 60 students decided last week to move the portrait to the high school, where the club meets and where its current members are students. He said the middle school building housed the high school when the club presented the portrait, and it had just never been moved to the newer building.
Eisnaugle said the club wants to keep the portrait up because "the club is Christian-based and it represents the club and the Christian principles that the club values."
He said the purposes of the club haven't changed through the years "and neither have the principles it values."
The portrait now is hanging on a wall alongside a trophy case.
