A school in Texas got caught with an unconstitutional mural on its wall. O’Donnell High School had a mural on the wall that listed the Ten Commandments.
Here is what it looked like:

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sent a letter to the school reminding them that these displays DO NOT belong in a public school.
Many Christians take it the wrong way when we do things like this. The school put an American flag over the mural while they were deciding what to do with it. The students protested by putting Bible verses on Post-Its and putting them on the walls.
The FFRF wasn’t trying to stop students from expressing themselves. The school just can’t show a preference for one religion over another. That’s what religious freedom is all about!
The school eventually painted over it, so now there is a Ten Commandments monument going up on private property across the street. Some Christians always seem to think that their religious freedom is being taken away. Public schools must be inclusive to people of all religions and the people who are not religious. Separation of church and state, people!
Students are allowed to express their religious beliefs on their own anytime. Religious freedom doesn’t include taking away other people’s freedoms!
