Your story (TNT, 1-13) about the monument for Dr. Gordon Klatt describes a conflict with our constitutional separation of church and state.The description of the monument beneath the photograph states that the monument's title is "The Hands of God."
For the Tacoma School District to put a monument titled this way on the campus of a public, tax-supported school becomes a direct endorsement of and favoring those religions that believe in a single all-powerful god while at the same time showing disrespect for those who believe in different gods or are free of religious dogma.
Has the school district reviewed this issue with its lawyers? Is it aware of the probable lawsuits that will be placed against the district due to the breach of neutrality that all public institutions are expected to honor in this matter?
To avoid this problem, I suggest that the artist either change the title to a nonreligious one or leave it untitled. Art should stand on its own visual merits and not need a name.
