The Newton County School System says language arts students made the drawings from a quote in Arthur Miller’s play “The Crucible”. The pictures were posted as part of student art work for several years without receiving a complaint. “The student was not reflecting religious preferences. Basically, he’s just reflecting a quote in the book,” said Sherri Davis-Viniard, Newton County School System’s spokesperson.
As for the classroom teacher, the school system spokeswoman says, by law, administrators cannot inquire about a teacher’s religious beliefs.
“We can’t hire or fire based on religious preference. We’re not even allowed to ask,” Davis-Viniard said.
Crystal Mitchell says the words and the images upset her 10th grade daughter.
“If my child can’t pray in school and they’ve taken religion out of school, for this to be plastered on the walls of the public school is a huge concern to me,” said Mitchell.
Mitchell believes the drawings should be taken down.
“It doesn’t have a place on the school wall — just doesn’t have a place in public school,” she said.
Mitchell says other parents tell her they’re also concerned about the drawings in that high school classroom.
The school system says there are no plans to remove the drawings, calling it strictly student art work.

One small voice cries out for the Persecuted Church. More than 100,000,000 Christians around the world are at risk of persecution. It has become one of the worst humanitarian crises on the planet, today! It is ”a crisis point in history” that can no longer be overlooked, or millions more will suffer! Sadly it’s a crisis that not enough people realize exists. Unfortunately the western media rarely reports the extreme persecution inflicted on our Christian brothers and sisters, worldwide. We are called by our God to stand up for all who are destitute, to remember the prisoners as if imprisoned ourselves and to be a VOICE for the persecuted Church! Join us, we CAN make a difference!
