Atheists demand middle school remove Jesus painting

Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation is at it again. This time, they’re demanding that a middle school in Ohio remove a portrait from a hallway where it has hung since 1947. A student, some 66 years ago, gave the portrait to his school as a gift. And student gifts are perfectly acceptable for display, according to the school’s guidelines.  But this doesn’t phase the activists, who say that if Jackson Middle School doesn’t remove it, the group will take legal action against the district.

“I’m certainly not going to run down there and take the picture down because some group from Madison, Wisconsin, who knows nothing about the culture of our community or why the picture is even there, wants me to take it down,” proclaimed the superintendent.

Here’s the full report over at The Blaze:

    I read that the Atheists have opened up their first church of atheism.

    Does this mean all atheists are now hypocrites?

    The artist's rendition of Jesus is beautiful….Jesus is portrayed as one good looking, handsome man…..and I wonder if the man in this picture were alive today, would the girls be (in modern phraseology) "hitting on him?"

    Isaiah 53:2b-3
    "He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and familiar with suffering. Like one whom men hide their faces, he was despised and we esteem him not."

    We do not know extactly what our Risen Lord looks like and I praise Him for that because true faith comes by hearing, not by sight. This picture is not Jesus, but a graven image and an idol to all who adore it, and if it comes down from the walls of a secular school system, then so be it. The world will not end and the Holy Spirit will continue to do His works in the minds and hearts of men.

    In the religious system of my past, in my flesh, I would have become angry and spoke against all of those unbelievers who dare remove any religious icons from anything to the visible eye. But since God, the Holy Spirit showed me His truth from His Words, these news stories do not invoke any rebellion whatsoever, because icons are not of God, but of man. My heart hurts when I see these very same pictures in the man-made churches of today; they do not draw us nearer to Jesus, but depict a false Jesus from the imagination of man. Does God, our Father, speak highly of man's imagination?

    If the picture comes down, will true believers revolt, rebel, and become hostile to the unbelievers, or will they rejoice in our LORD JESUS CHRIST and pray in private for all of those souls who are bound for hell at this very moment. And how many of those professing believers have embraced the glorious riches of the Gospel and shared them with their unbelieving friends and neighbors in humility?

    May the name of Jesus be praised and lifted up!

    Aside from the obvious how can we expect anything different from a culture given into Satans hand so we as beleivers would not look to the world for our salvation.

    Kim, It appears to me that you need a relationship with th Lord and Savior Jesus. Yes even you, just like all of the rest of us need His grace and forgiveness. Do yourself a favor, look around at the world . . . its no longer just a few earthquakes and famines. A huge amount of prophecies are being or are preparing to be fulfilled. Its not a bunch of whacko conspiracy theorist anymore. If you cant see it then you are making an effort to NOT see it. If you really cant then pray and ask God to oper your eyes. Denial is more than a river in Egypt my friend. When you look to the west and see dark clouds and then the cool breeze picks up a little, the leaves kinda turn upside down and the sky darkens you know a storm is coming. Same with the world Honey . . A storm is gathering !!
    You can almost hear His footsteps !!

    Just ask and I will help you to see
