ACLU defends students’ right to post Ten Commandments

A Virginia High School made Christian students take down copies of the Ten Commandments that they’d posted. The ACLU has reached out to the school in defense of the students’ right to post religious messages as long as the messages come from the students themselves and not the faculty.

“The Supreme Court recognizes the difference between school officials’ imposing religious messages on students, which violates the establishment clause, and school officials allowing students to express their own views on religion in situations that are not school-organized or sponsored,” said Glenberg in the release.
