Rhode Island High School Censors Mural Showing Traditional Marriage


 Government school administrators seem to be dumbing down faster than their students. Now school administrators at the Pilgrim High School are worried that a student’s mural depicting a marriage between a man and a woman might offend gays and others opposed to traditional marriage.

Last Week, NBC News reported that  Elizabeth Bierenday, a junior at Pilgrim High School in Warwick, was asked to create a mural for the school.

She sketched a mural that showed the growth of a boy into adulthood. The last image showed a man with a woman and child and wedding rings over their heads.

Bierenday showed the school’s assistant principal the sketches, which were approved. When she started to paint the mural last week, when an assistant principal said that Some people at the school felt the mural didn’t accurately represent many of Pilgrim’ students. In other words, some people were offended that a traditional marriage was being depicted because in their minds it slighted gay marriage. So, school officials decided to paint over the right side of the mural showing the marriage of a man and a woman

Warwick Superintendent Peter Horoschak said he just found out about the issue on Thursday and sided with Bierenday saying she should be allowed to paint her original design.

NBC 10 spoke with a few parents and they agreed with the superintendent that the mural should be shown as Bierenday intended.

On Friday, Bierenday spoke with John DePetro on WPRO-AM about the mural and said she was told that her original design may be offensive or a religious symbol.

Small wonder kids are not learning history, English or math. Government schools these days are too busy forcing politically correct propaganda down our kids throats while ignoring sound educational standards.
