New Mexico School Forbids Religious References
When members of a Christian Club at Albuquerque's La Cueva High School wanted to promote their club with posters and flyers, they included Bible verses and quotes from popular Christian figures. But school officials prohibited the club from making any overt religious references in their promotional materials. The Pacific Justice Institute, a law firm that defends civil liberties, has threatened a lawsuit if the students are restrained from exercising their free speech rights.
Will anyone understand the irony of paying off the lawsuit with money labeled "In God We Trust"?
