The Lubbock Independent School District in Texas is home to Lowrey Field, where the four high schools in the area play their home football games. The 8,500-seat stadium also houses a digital billboard where companies like Whataburger, Fuddruckers, and United Supermarkets pay for ads to run during the big games.
So, naturally, the man behind JesusTattoo.org wanted to place an ad there, too:
(The website has nothing to do with tattoos, by the way. It’s just one guy’s failed idea of a “hip” way to convert teens to Christianity.)
Believe it or not — and to their credit — the district said no. It was religious, they said, and they didn’t want to violate the Constitution.
