A Wisconsin atheist organization has forced an Alabama police department to take down a Christian flag that has been flying in front of their building for some 20 years. The atheist group also demanded that the Christian flag could not be flown at any city or municipal buildings.
Christian Flag No Longer Flying Outside Alabama Police Department Following Atheist Complaint
By Heather Clark/Christian News Network
A Christian flag has been removed from its position outside of an Alabama police department after a prominent atheist activist organization sent a letter to the city, demanding that it come down.
Glencoe officials have confirmed that the Christian flag—a white and blue flag with a red cross first created in 1897 to honor the Christian faith—that has flown outside of the city police department for 20 years has been removed. The flag was one of three outside of the building, including that Alabama and American flag.
Mayor Charles Gilchrist told local television station WBRC that the flag was removed just weeks after the city received a letter from the Madison, Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF). The group stated that it had received a complaint about the presence of the flag and asserted that it was an unlawful endorsement of Christianity.
