National group warns Cochran about Christian flag


UPDATE:

A national activists' group says the city of Cochran is violating the First Amendment by flying a Christian flag at its City Hall.


The group, called the Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, says it's written letters to city officials and the Cochran County officials.

According to the group's website. their executive director, the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, wrote, "When government buildings fly a Christian flag, especially with the intention of promoting Bible reading, it sends a crystal clear message that one religion is favored above all others."

UPDATE: Cochran to stop flying Christian flag at city hall


Cochran City Manager Richard Newbern said council members voted last week to rescind its previous vote to fly the Christian flag at City Hall.

Council made the vote in a special called meeting on April 28, Newbern said.

The last day for the Christian flag to fly above City Hall is May 8, said Newbern.

The city issued the following statement:
