A student-drawn picture posted inside the lobby of Hamilton Elementary School in Fresno, California is sparking debate over whether it's sacrilegious or just another assignment.
The hand-drawn picture is of Jesus with the caption: "I want you to kill all infidels," reports ABC30.
Below on the poster are the phrases: "meet me in Jerusalem" and "get a free ticket to heaven."
Parent [and Christian] Chris Alfaro told ABC30: "I do believe common sense tells you, 'Hey this may not be appropriate for a k through 8 school, right in the main lobby where each child passes on their way to school and home.'"
Alfaro's wife first noticed the drawing in early March and called the school office to complain. Alfaro Recalled: "The aide said something along the lines of I'll see what I can do, and then hung up the phone."
A spokesperson with the Fresno Unified District released a statement, which said: "Students at Hamilton were assigned to create a help wanted poster for soldiers needed to fight in the crusades and write a poem about Joan of arc, the Black Death, or the Magna Carta and create a visual background for it. This was one of several posters displayed."
The Crusades were a series of wars launched by the Catholic Church against other religions, including Muslims.
