A parent in Newton County, Georgia is upset because a display of drawings done by students includes one that says “God is dead.” But just as students are free to express religious views in homework assignments when appropriate, they’re also free to express irreligious views.
Crystal Mitchell says the words and the images upset her 10th grade daughter.
“If my child can’t pray in school and they’ve taken religion out of school, for this to be plastered on the walls of the public school is a huge concern to me,” said Mitchell.
Mitchell believes the drawings should be taken down.
“It doesn’t have a place on the school wall — just doesn’t have a place in public school,” she said.
Just imagine what her reaction would be if another parent complained about a drawing that was religious in nature. She’d almost certainly be screaming about tyranny and religious oppression. Christian privilege, anyone?
