Suing the Good Shepherds

 A major atheist organization has announced its plans to go through with a lawsuit against a city in Alabama should its police department continue their "Operation Good Shepherd" program that involves pastors accompanying police to crime scenes to offer guidance to victims.

American Atheists announced this week that in the next few days it will be filing a lawsuit against the city of Montgomery and its police department for their program, unless the police department gives in to the organization's demands to disband the community outreach program.

The atheists' attorneys threatened to push forward with the lawsuit, indicating that they hoped the cost of defending the lawsuit for the state would be too great and would force them to back down.
