High School Students Fight Back Against Censorship of Ten Commandments

Hundreds of Christian students in an Oklahoma town have decided to fight back against a national association of atheists and agnostics who say they want displays of the Ten Commandments removed from local public schools.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, an organization that targets displays of Christian faith in schools, told school district superintendent Ron Flanagan that the Ten Commandment “plaques” that are posted in some of the classrooms at Muldrow High School should be removed.

Students have decided to defend the plaques by launching petitions and raising awareness on social networking sites. In addition, the local interfaith ministerial association printed 1,000 t-shirts portraying the Ten Commandments, and many students plan to wear the shirts to school.
