High School Paints over Inspiring Bible Verse after Atheist Group Complains

A Kentucky high school has removed a Bible verse from the wall in its athletic locker room following a complaint from an atheist group.

Letcher Central High School in Whitesburg, Ky., previously had an inspirational Bible verse painted over the team’s locker reading, “But the Lord is with me like a Mighty Warrior” – a reference to Jeremiah 20:11.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) then wrote the superintendent, requesting that the Bible verse be removed and that two other instances of religious expression in the school system be discontinued.
