Second-Grader Feels Wrath of State Over Picture of Jesus

Our government-run schools may be abysmal at teaching math, science, reading, and writing, but there is one lesson they get across effectively — Thou shalt have no gods before envirostatism:

A Taunton [Massachusetts] father is outraged after his 8-year-old son was sent home from school and required to undergo a psychological evaluation after drawing a stick-figure picture of Jesus Christ on the cross.
The father said he got a call earlier this month from Maxham Elementary School informing him that his son, a second-grade student, had created a violent drawing. The image in question depicted a crucified Jesus with Xs covering his eyes to signify that he had died on the cross. …
The student drew the picture shortly after taking a family trip to see the Christmas display at the National Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette, a Christian retreat site in Attleboro. He made the drawing in class after his teacher asked the children to sketch something that reminded them of Christmas, the father said.

The "psychological evaluation" aspect is especially alarming. After progressives seized control of Russia in 1917, dissidents were locked away in mental asylums for not embracing slavery to the State.

At least they haven't gone back to feeding Christians to lions. No doubt it would be considered exploitation of animals.

The official state religion, as imposed in our schools.
