So rather than take a serious approach (come on, what high schooler would pick something serious over something tongue-in cheek), I decided to name my water "Jesus Juice" with the slogan "A miracle in a bottle." There would be a picture of Jesus on the bottle. After designing the label I was told by my teacher to "pick a new idea."

Who are they to say wether I am mocking it or not? For all they know I could be expressing my beliefs in christian teachings and showing my devotion to God.

I think you should submit your design as is. If you get into any trouble, you can bring up the head covering thing, and threaten to make a big deal to the local media about discrimination.
Of course, you should make sure that you are not violating any school rules. Talk to a guidance counselor or a trusted teacher and see what they think.
I imagine that your teacher, rather than being discriminatory, is trying his/her best to avoid a situation where someone else will get offended by your design. It is concievable that someone would be offended by it, but so long as you don't portray Jesus in a negative way on the bottle, I think it's a flimsy argument at best.
I say go for it. Fight the good fight. Make sure your parents are on your side before the battle starts, however. If your parents get rowdy, the school will roll over like possum and play dead.

Perhaps you could also market disloving tables that turn the water to wine.
The lawsuit could be filed, but it would never stand up in court. Freedom of speach. Freedom of (read NOT FROM) Religion. It would be dismissed from court if you actually found a lawyer to take the case
