Atheist Girl Files Suit Over School's Prayer Banner

UPDATE:  Teen Jessica Alquist has won her court case. However, the victory is bitter sweet. Popular Atheist Blogger Greta Christina reports that Jessica's "state representative has called the student 'evil' and she has been threatened with violence, rape and death." It is also rumored that the school is looking to appeal. Furthermore, when Freedom From Religion Foundation's Annie Laurie Gaylor attempted to have flowers sent to the teen, the local florists refused to send flowers to her. She was able to, however, place an order out of state with Glimpse of Gia.

For those of you who wish to help this young woman out, feel free to contribute to her college fund. It's already reached $24,000. 

 

 

Cranston High School West sophomore and Atheist, Jessica Alquist, is fighting to have a mural offering a prayer removed from her school. The Rhode Island Chapter of the ACLU is taking action against a separation of church and state issue in their state.

Jessica Alquist said, "the prayer's presence in the school promotes and endorses the ideals of Christianity and the concept of a single "heavenly Father." She continued, "I firmly believe that it should not be on display in a public school and is in direct violation of my and other students' civil right."

Good luck, Jessica!

soooo let's look at your post Kerry2(respectf ully),,
the banner is preaching hate right,,,or is that you?
the banner says you have to believe or else,,
the banner says to do what you just posted,,right?
the banner is a present,,though ts from a group of students who appreciated what the school gave them,,,that's all,,
hmmmm,,maybe if you get a special secret pair of spy glasses you can see the hidden message???
so let me get this right,,,you think the banner says to burn people at the stake,,,,,wow,g ood thing they covered it up huh?
hate will age you
(come on negative one,,,don't disappoint me)
