The Rhode Island chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union says the prayer banner at Cranston West High School has finally been taken down.
The action comes seven weeks after a federal judge ruled the banner unconstitutional and ordered its immediate removal. The Cranston School Committee voted not to appeal.
The school district has scheduled a press conference at 4 p.m. today to address the issue and to give media outlets a chance to photograph where the banner used to be displayed.
The images of the “new” wall aren’t available yet, but I’m sure empty space has never looked so good.
***Update***: And we have an image of the prayer-less wall!
