Group Sues Over Tattooed Jesus Billboard

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- A west Texas religious group is suing Lubbock ISD over an advertisement.

The ad at the center of the suit is a tattooed Jesus shown on billboards all over Lubbock.

The group behind the ad, Little Pencil LLC, says it's meant to promote the Bible's teachings through contemporary marketing.

According to their suit, the school district would not show the ad on their jumbotron during high school football games.

But they claim the district allowed other faith-based organizations to advertise.

According to school district officials, they have not yet been served with the lawsuit.
