Egregious Texas violation protested

FFRF Senior Staff Attorney Rebecca Markert wrote a letter of complaint Dec. 5 to city officials in San Angelo, Texas, urging removal of an illegal lighted Latin cross atop the Police Department. According to FFRF’s local complainant, the cross adorns the building only during the holiday season. “The building is clearly marked ‘San Angelo Police Department,’ which allows all passersby to identify it as a city building,” Markert wrote. “Its hosting of a powerful sectarian symbol cannot be seen as a traditional decoration of the holiday season, but instead can only be a message of government support for Christianity.”
