What we have come to: traditional marriage depiction “offensive”? April 11, 2012

Details:

Warwick [Rhode Island] officials are allowing a Pilgrim High School student to finish a hallway mural as she originally intended, after they had a section of it painted over last week.

The mural shows a man’s journey from childhood to adulthood, with the last part showing him standing with a woman and child with wedding rings over their heads. Officials had the last part painted over after at least one student raised concerns that the traditional ending might offend people with alternative lifestyles.

Officials gave the student the go-ahead on Monday to complete the mural as she intended. They say the mural had been approved in advance by school administrators and doesn’t violate any policies.

School Committee Chairwoman Bethany Furtado says officials shouldn’t have ordered the last part painted over.
