Jessica Alquist is in the news again. Apparently the School Board doesn't want to comply with the judges ruling regarding the religious banner hanging on the wall of her public high school. She has had to take some time off from school because she continues to receive threats but is determined to graduate from Cranston West High School.

she's more mature than most of the grown up religious people I know. I'm pleased with how she's managed to handle the situation, I'm sure I could not handle it the same way as her.

Christianity is about love and kindness and, of course, calling out the occassional death threat.
