There is a controversy brewing at the Mount Abraham Union High School in Bristol, as students there had the temerity to display a statuette of Jesus.
Even though the justification was promoted that this statue was not an exclusively religious display, but was well within school policy because its presence served as commentary on an academic issue, the students were instructed to remove it.
In the world of academia, only displays of Christianity are taboo; all other religions are acceptable, and this asks a fundamental question, "Since atheism, which meets the standard definition of a religion, is the faith and belief that there is no God, would the absence of any and all religious artifacts within a school be a testimonial that the school supports atheism as a state religion?"
