no Bible censor BibleA school in New Mexico wasted no time in painting over a Christian-themed mural on a wall on campus after an atheist group complained.

After receiving a letter of complaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), the Clovis Freshman Academy painted over the mural of a dove, anchor and the Hebrews 6:19 Bible verse.

Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute contends that schools do not need to have a knee-jerk reaction to such attacks.

"What they should do is that they should contact legal organizations that have expertise in this area – like the Pacific Justice Institute and others – that can really walk them through and have an objective understanding as to the risks and possible legal ramifications," Dacus advised.

The mural was painted by a former art teacher four years ago. The legal expert insists that most of it could have been salvaged.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)"The school district did not have to totally cover up the entire mural,” Dacus pointed out. “They could have kept it, and they could have kept the quote. They would have likely, though, been advised to have covered over the scriptural reference."

According to ChristianNews.com, local television station KRQE polled a number of members of the public, and most of them said that they had no problem with the Christian mural.
