Atheists Declare War on Texas Town, Get BRUTAL Response

By

A group of atheists has launched a prolonged legal assault on a small Texas town that it deems too Christian.

The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is demanding that Spur, Texas remove a 12-foot-cross from one of its public parks.

The cross can reportedly be viewed when driving into town, and from many places in Spur.

FFRF insists this is a gross violation of the US Constitution.

The group has sent two letters to the local municipality threatening legal action.

“The government’s permanent display of a Latin cross on public land is unconstitutional,” the first letter read. “The display of this patently religious symbol on public property confers government endorsement of Christianity, a blatant violation of the Establishment Clause.”

But town officials have very wisely ignored the letters. FFRF needs to find someone local willing to take up the lawsuit, and it can’t.

“I bet you if I could call everybody in Spur to come and line up behind me, they’d do it,” said local resident Frances Blackburn said. “We’re not taking it down.”

It is absolutely absurd that an aggressive atheist group from a completely different state can tell a small Christian town what to do with its own property.
