A Wisconsin-based anti-religion organization is filing suit against a Pennsylvania county because its official seal includes a cross.
The Madison-based Freedom From Religion Foundation filed the suit against Lehigh County on Tuesday in district court on behalf of multiple local residents.

One of the largest secular lobbying groups in America has graded Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton an "A," while giving Republican nominee Donald Trump an "F," ahead of November's presidential elections.
"The nonreligious are now the largest voting bloc in the country and it is essential that they know where the candidates stand on these critical issues," said Larry T. Decker, Executive Director of the Secular Coalition for America.
"These guides will empower secular voters to hold political candidates accountable. Donald Trump's flunking grade should serve as a wake up call to his campaign about the political peril of pandering to the religious right. This divisive rhetoric no longer resonates with an American electorate that increasingly accepts science, embraces religious pluralism, and values the separation of church and state." more >>

A staunch atheist kindergarten teacher in Seattle has shed her atheism and turned to Christ just months after her ill mother was miraculously healed and doctors couldn't explain how.
Kim Menon, a kindergarten teacher at Kenmore Elementary School in Kenmore, Washington, who espoused atheist beliefs for nearly 15 years, opened up to The Christian Post Tuesday night about how she finally came to embrace Christianity and how she is overcoming her traumatizing life experiences, suicidal thoughts and bouts of depression.
Menon, who grew up in a Lutheran family and was baptized at an early age, was dealt more than her fair of share of life struggles and setbacks growing up and throughout her adulthood, which led her to eventually outright denying God's existence. more >>
An American secular organization has demanded that an Air Force major be "aggressively punished" for placing an open Bible on his desk at the Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colo., arguing that it violates the separation of church and state.
Colorado Springs Independent reported Wednesday that the Bible was removed from the desk, and Peterson officials are investigating whether allowing the officer to place it there was a reasonable accommodation of his religious beliefs.
"The basic premise of the Air Force instruction [on religious freedom], grounded in Department of Defense policy, grounded in law is, people have an inherent right to free exercise of religion within boundaries," said Col. Damon Feltman, 310th Space Wing commander. more >>
