Religious Art Gets Student Zero

Student Sues School After Getting a Zero for Religious Drawing:

MADISON, Wis. — A Tomah High School student has filed a federal lawsuit alleging his art teacher censored his drawing because it featured a cross and a biblical reference.

The lawsuit alleges other students were allowed to draw "demonic" images and asks a judge to declare a class policy prohibiting religion in art unconstitutional.

Another teacher, at the same school, refused to accept a cross he turned in for a metal working class project. So 'demonic' artwork is OK and Christian artwork is not? Where's the ACLU on this one?
