(KWCH) Grovetown High School and Columbia County Board of Education officials are looking into how an eye brow-raising quote in a yearbook made it into the final product.

The photo is of a student who has a self-attributed quote that reads, “I don’t know why people think Jesus Christ is coming back, he wasn’t nailed to a boomerang.”

The quote and the photo have since gone viral. Mary Gray, a friend of the student who wrote the quote, says it was an innocent joke.

“He didn’t mean anything by it, I’m sure,” Gray said. “He wasn’t targeting religious people because he is religious.”
