A Florida city has barred three paintings from a city hall display celebrating Black History Month because they contain small references to the Christian faith. Officials at the city of Deltona, Fla., say hanging the colorful photos by artist Lloyd Marcus would be tantamount to the town favoring a specific religion. Marcus' paintings were to be part of an employee-organized display in the lobby of Deltona City Hall, but acting city manager Roland Blossom nixed the art, reported the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

There are no Floridians in Deltona! I don't know where they come from!
The worst cuss word I ever heard my Granma utter, was, "Carpetbaggers"!

This country is headed for insanity. You can't mention religion today in the context of a public display...unless of course it's Islam. It's to be praised and exaulted by public officials as the ROP.

Man 'o man, what's happening here? The federal courts have gone nuts, sodomy is fine but religion has to be done away with.

It's just nuts out there.

My parents grew up in depression era western Oklahoma and used to sing Black Joe in school. Then they were told it was federally illegal. They were stunned.

Maybe the paintings should have been voodoo oriented.

Another anti-American fascist Nazi strikes for the Islamic terrorist. Since I am sure that any symbol of Islam would be welcomed by the cowards.

It always amazes me how these idiots can justify there actions using the 'separation of church and state' argument against religion, and yet totally ignore the second part of the first Amendment on religion.

"or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"

Why do we let them get away with it?

Can't mention God in schools but you can mention Allah. Can't teach kids "morality" in schools but telling them homosexuality is normal and healthy is fine.

What will it be like in America in another 20 or 30 years?
