Atheists to sheriff: Stop promoting Christianity

By WND Staff

(WRCB-TV) “If you don’t like the Facebook page, you don’t have to punch it in and pull it up. You can go to someone else’s Facebook page,” said Bradley County Sheriff Eric Watson, in response to the recent complaints made about his agency’s official Facebook page.

The complaints center around a Bradley County Sheriff’s Office Facebook post that was published on Easter Sunday. It quotes Bible verses and depicts a cross that says “He Is Risen.”

The post prompted the American Atheists Legal Center to send a letter to Watson, asking him to stop promoting Christianity in his official role as Sheriff.
