One of Thor's most potent tools is a magic hammer.
My position is that on public property, if you allow relics from one religion, you have to allow from all religions if you profess religious freedom. The better solution is to keep all religious items off of public property and prevent situations like what you describe. There are plenty of private properties you can display your religion.
Those opposed to this bid don't really want religious freedom, but rather a continuation of Judeo-Christian Privilege.
Court rulings prohibit school officials - in their official capacity - from encouraging religious activity.
According to the complaint, "Students are encouraged to attend these [weekly] sessions by an announcement made by the principal over the school’s intercom system."
The point is that the teacher is an official representative of the school. As such, if a teacher engages in religious activity, it is tantamount to the school's doing so.

Neither. We are both too solidly in our own positions to be convinced by the other. Perhaps there are other readers less certain and open to seeing arguments from both sides.

In your scenario, the gift giver character could prevent the suffering that taints the "artwork" in the first place and thereby avoid offense. In real life, nobody else is qualified to determine how much suffering is too much for someone else to endure.

No point giving us free will then being offended when we actually use it.
