Kentucky High School Called Out for Promoting Bible Verse in Locker Room

You would think a public high school would at least try to hide its overt Christianity, and yet this is the locker room at Letcher County Central High School in Whitesburg, Kentucky:

The sign says “But the Lord is with me like a Mighty Warrior. Jeremiah 20:11.”

Freedom From Religion Foundation attorney Chris Line says that this isn’t even the only problem in the district. In October, FFRF sent the district a letter regarding a display in a middle school that said “Jesus is my savior. You can’t scare me!” Another school also posted a Christian prayer on Facebook.

Now, once again, FFRF is demanding the district fix the problem.

FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor comments, “The wanton displaying of religion all over the district shows a callous disregard for students who are not Christian. Public schools must be welcoming to all students, and must stay out of religious proselytizing.”

So far, the district hasn’t responded to any of the concerns.
