Freedom Of … Or From?


The Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist group, has successfully bullied the town of Steubenville, Ohio, which is the home of Franciscan University, to remove a part of the new city logo that depicted a chapel and cross to honor the Catholic institution.

Michael Hernon from the Franciscan University that is considered a landmark of the town and was to be featured in the logo:
"We find it particularly troubling that an out of town and out of touch group targeted the University for removal from the logo solely because of our religious identity. For more than 65 years, Franciscan University of Steubenville has proudly served as an integral part of this community and we were honored to have our chapel included in the new city of Steubenville logo."
The group was particularly keen to point out the city motto and the church as being "incompatible".
