Bible verse taken off jury summonses in Pa. (June 29, 2021)

A resident in Fayette County, Pa., reported receiving a jury summons containing the bible verse, “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established.”

Staff Attorney Christopher Line sent a letter to Commissioners Janet Trees and Lauren Mahoney-Yohman asking for the bible verse to be removed from all jury summonses.

Trees responded in July and said that upon receiving the FFRF letter, the bible verse was immediately removed from all jury summonses.
