In the Coal Ridge High School mural story on Aug. 15, a reference was made to a letter by Keith Wood, a Glenwood Springs pastor. The story said that Wood compared the mural to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Wood’s letter didn’t make that comparison; rather, it spoke of the hypocrisy that a mural of a mythological Greek god could appear in a school, yet no religious art work is allowed in schools. In his letter (written before the mural was painted over), Wood said: “Should the portrait of Prometheus, the Greek god of fire and of the creation of mankind, be able to stay, I want a mural depicting the ultimate sacrifice of my God, Jesus Christ. … Whatever mural of Jesus suits you, let’s just practice equality of religion and free speech in our public schools.”
