A controversial religious plaque at Mountain Peak Elementary School that had been covered was uncovered by someone Wednesday, according to Midlothian ISD officials, and there is no plan to re-cover it.
The plaque had been covered with duct tape Tuesday after the Freedom from Religion Foundation threatened to sue the school district.
The 2-by-3-foot display next to the front entrance of the school includes two Latin crosses and reads, “Dedicated in the year of our Lord 1997 to the education of God's children and to their faithful teachers in the name of the Holy Christian Church - Soli Deo Gloria."
The Freedom from Religion Foundation said the plaque offends the Constitution because it specifically promotes “The Holy Christian Church” and contains a Latin phrase the means “Glory to God alone.”
There is also a similar religious plaque at Longbranch Elementary, but unlike the Mountain Peak plaque, it was not covered Tuesday.
