Federal court orders Rhode Island school to remove prayer mural
These types of cases routinely get over-turned, if people have the money or will to fight them in court. The Federal Judge in my estimation should be removed from his bench by the Congress who has that authority but never exercises it. Clearly this is not a case where the government is "establishing a religion, or inhibiting the free exercise thereof".
But one person complains, and everyone else suffers. We CONTINUE TO ALLOW GOD TO BE KICKED OUT OF OUR CLASSROOMS AND GOVERNMENT PROPERTY AND WONDER WHY OUR COUNTRY IS IMPLODING!What a beautiful prayer the sign is at that school...and what evil has been perpetrated by our courts.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – A has ordered the immediate removal of a prayer mural displayed in the auditorium of a Rhode Island public high school.
Teenage atheist student Jessica Ahlquist had sued Cranston city and Cranston High School West officials, demanding they remove the banner because it promotes a religion.
She calls it offensive to non-Christians.
City officials claimed the mural is a historical artifact from the school's early days and serves no religious purpose. The prayer encourages students to strive academically. It begins with the words "Our Heavenly Father" and ends with "Amen."
A senior U.S. District Court judge on Wednesday ruled in the atheist student's favor.
The student has 20 days to file counsel fees and costs. City officials will have 10 days to respond. The court will enter judgment after these issues are resolved.
