GROVETOWN, GA (WFXG) - People are outraged after a controversial quote about Jesus in the Grovetown High School yearbook circulated the internet.

The student’s quote reads “I don’t know why people think Jesus is coming back, he wasn’t nailed to a boomerang.”

FOX 54 got this photo of the yearbook entry from a post on Snapchat.

Columbia County Schools Superintendent Dr. Sandra Carraway said, “We allow our seniors to make quotes under their pictures. Maybe that’s not a good idea because sadly, in the day that we live, something that’s not offensive to one person can be offensive to another.”

Carraway said a yearbook sponsor worked with students to oversee it before publication. She said a review of whether students should be allowed to make quotes is underway.
