      Appeal filed over Jesus tattoo advertisment

      Attorneys have appealed judge's ruling against Jesus tattoo ad.

      Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys have appealed a federal judge's May 29 ruling that allowed Lubbock Independent School District to refuse to display a faith-based ad on its jumbotron during high school football games.

      A Lubbock-based firm called Little Pencil was initially denied by the district for running their ads to promote Christian values. The firm featured an ad of a heavily tattooed image of Jesus.

      The school district officials says the ad violated the district's code of conduct policy that requires tattoos to be covered.
