The Freedom From Religion Foundation was able to get the Bryant County, Georgia courthouse to remove this overtly Christian flag. There is nothing ambiguous given that there is a Christian cross on the fabric and another Christian cross on the pole.

This courtroom is a place where people expect Equal Protection. Yet, one religion is promoted and preferenced over others—at the elbow of judges who should know better. Would a Jew or a Muslim or someone who is gay get a fair shake in that court? Possibly but the flag suggests otherwise. We non-Christians find these overt “Christian Nation™” displays highly offensive. In point of fact we are a secular nation and a secular society. Removal should not have required the intervention of FFRF. It never should have been there in the first place.
