Texas church bans child's photograph of Passion

Jackson was assigned to portray the seventh Station of the Cross, where Jesus fell for a second time while carrying the cross to the site of his crucifixion. The home-schooled fifth-grader, who is taking a class on religious symbols in art at a Catholic church, decided to do a modern depiction of Christ being beaten by a Roman soldier.


  1. I'm glad I found your blog. As a homeschooling mom, it has a lot of good information for me I use!


  2. I could see being disturbed by the photo if the kid hadn't been assigned that particular Station of the Cross. But in the context it makes perfect sense. Shame on the church for rejecting it!
