HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. -- Bible verses painted in a western Kentucky school bathroom to cover up graffiti have been removed after a parent complained to school officials.
Dr. Bob Lovingood is the superintendent of Christian County Public Schools. He directed that the scriptures be covered.
A parent had complained to Lovingood, saying the scriptures in a Christian County Middle School girls' bathroom violated students' constitutional rights.
The scriptures were painted during the recent winter break by middle school volunteers. Over three days they replaced vulgar images and profanity with upbeat art and inspirational messages.
