All soldiers aren’t Christian

FFRF wrote a letter Nov. 8 to alert the library director in Smithfield, N.C., that it’s unconstitutional for a public library to put a Christian cross on a poster announcing a secular federal holiday. “We ask that you immediately remove these posters from the public library grounds and replace them with posters that are free from religious iconography,” Staff Attorney Rebecca Markert wrote, adding that the cross “literally illustrates the library’s failure to recognize America’s increasingly large secular population and to accommodate the changing demographics of the United States. Religious identification surveys indicate that at least 15 percent, or 34 million, adult Americans are now nonreligious.”
