Lehigh County Being Sued Over It's Seal

"A religious freedom group and four residents are suing Lehigh County over its official seal and flag, claiming the cross depicted in both violates the U.S. Constitution by endorsing Christianity."

My Comments About The Article Above
The whole thing could have been avoided. Commissioners should have said it wasn't a cross but rather the intersection where 7th meets Hamilton as a means for visitors to locate county offices.

Seriously I've been alive and living here in this county for 68 years and seen this on my documents for years having had no idea. I hardly think the Lehigh County seal is going to make converts out of anyone. In my opinion some people have too much time on their hands and may be looking for an opportunity to bring in a little extra $cratch for themselves.

According to the suit, "As a result of the action and inactions of Lehigh County, each of the plaintiffs are suffering and will suffer irreparable harm for which there is no adequate remedy at law,"

Here all along growing up I thought only vampires could suffer such ill effects. Who knew !
