An Ohio high school student is standing up for his faith after a Ten Commandments plaque was taken down from a school hallway.

Marion High School freshman Anthony Miller went "on strike" to protest the decision, refusing to participate in any school activities except for attending classes. 

"I don’t care about my grades right now,” Miller told The Marion Star, explaining that he will not complete classwork or homework.

“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.”

The school said it removed the plaque, which was a gift from the class of 1953, to avoid legal challenges. The plaque hung for years next to the preamble of the Constitution.

Administrators plan to meet with Miller and other concerned students about an agreement to hang the plaque somewhere else.

In the meantime, the students are gathering signatures on a petition to have the plaque displayed again.
