Leaders of a central Georgia city say they’ll remove a Christian flag flying over City Hall.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday (http://bit.ly/1OURSgi) that Cochran city officials voted, against the advice of the city attorney, to fly a Christian flag over City Hall.
The move prompted a response by the Washington-based Americans United for Separation of Church and State. The group sent letters to city and county officials saying flying the flag violated the First Amendment. The group’s Executive Director Rev. Barry W. Lynn said in a statement that flying the flag gives the impression that city officials favor one religion over others.
Cochran city officials said in a statement that they got a second opinion from a constitutional law attorney and voted 4-1 to remove the flag Friday.
