FFRF saves township website from unconstitutional bible quote (June 16, 2014)

Inappropriate religious material, brought to the FFRF’s attention by a concerned individual, has been removed from the official website of the township of Watersmeet, Mich.

The bible quote, accredited to Mr. Jesus Christ, which we will politely refrain from quoting again here, endorsed a belief in heaven, sin and Jesus.

FFRF Senior Staff Attorney Rebecca Markert wrote Township Supervisor Mike Rogers on June 16 to relay the information that “Courts have continually held that townships may not display religious messages.”

Rogers agreed moments after receiving the letter to remove the quote.
