Lehigh County Alert — Thank Your Commissioners for Saying “NO”
If you haven’t heard yet, your County Commissioners — all nine of them — told the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) “NO” when asked to remove the cross from the county seal! In part their response to FFRF states, “It is the position of Lehigh County that the presence of the cross on the seal among all the other items of historical significance has the secular purpose of recognizing the history of the county,” the response stated. “As such it does not violate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. Accordingly, the county is not planning on removing the cross from the seal.”
It takes a lot of courage nowadays for a government official to stand up to any atheist, let alone for nine to stand together and say “No.”

The FFRF hasn’t indicated how they will respond, so the Commissioners need your words of encouragement and thanks.
