Hal Sklar, an attorney and parent of a student attending the Bridgeport High School, attended the school board meeting raising objections to an unmarked picture commonly recognized as a portrait of Jesus. Sklar handed a copy of a similar court case and expected the picture to be taken down. According to Sklar, the mere image of a man that can be thought to be Jesus is considered a violated a student's First Amendment rights.
Carl Friebel, School superintendent, responded "The picture has never been used in any way, shape or form to espouse Christianity. We have our attorney looking at that, and reviewing the case laws out there, and ultimately this board will have to make a decision."
