The City of Mansfield is the most recent target of a Wisconsin group seeing to, as it states, “free” the country “from religion.”

In specific, the Mansfield Police Department is being urged to halt its police chaplaincy program immediately, according to a report posted today by CBN, the Christian Broadcasting Network.

In an article entitled “’Unconstitutional’: Atheists Target Police Chaplains, Demand Ohio Department Immediately Halt Program,” the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) of Madison, Wisconsin, was the entity that made the demand. The article included a link to a letter from the Foundation President to Mansfield Police Chief Keith Porch.

In its letter, the Foundation stated that the program is unconstitutional and opens up the Department to the potential of a discrimination lawsuit.
