A freshman at Harding High School in Marion, Ohio, is protesting his school's decision to remove a Ten Commandment plaque from its hallways by bravely not doing his homework or participating in school events.
The public school's administrators removed the plaque — a gift from the class of 1953 — this summer to avoid any potential lawsuits that it may bring (you know, because of the whole separation of church and state thing).
Anthony Miller, the freshman, told the Marion Star that because of it, he's "not actively participating or doing his homework."
"I don't care about my grades right now," he told the paper. "I told the principal, until there is an agreement reached, I will not participate in any Harding-related activities, any Marion City Schools-related activities. Sports, choir, classes, whatever. I won't even wear my Harding Marching Band shirt."
To make this protest go further — and really make the administrators feel it — we suggest Miller vow to play at least three hours of Xbox every day and sleep in late on the weekends. That'll show 'em.
