06/12/12 ... A student in a public school participated in painting a mural where many other students had added various religious symbols from different religions. When the student's art contained a cross and other Christian symbols, the school wiped them off with paint thinner. After the American Center for Law and Justice helped her protest, the school allowed her to repaint her mural.
