Christian bible removed from Ohio courthouse (December 2023)

FFRF has successfully intervened to remove a display containing a bible from the Monroe County Courthouse in Ohio. FFRF received a report that a large display on the ground floor of the courthouse included a Christian bible laid open. The display had reportedly been up since at least 2022. The display was located inside the courthouse’s public entrance. FFRF Legal Fellow Sammi Lawrence wrote to Monroe County Board of Commissioners President Diane Burkhart, who then had the county attorney look into it. According to the original complainant, the letter and local reaction to the display made Monroe County headlines. The bible was removed from display while the county attorney investigates the matter.
