What a bunch of hypocrites FFR is. They are so intolerant of people who believe differently than they do. The University is such a big part of Steubenville that it only makes sense to include the spire (and yes, its cross...gasp! lol) in Steubenville's logo.
The city of Steubenville’s decision last month to remove the Franciscan University of Steubenville’s chapel silhouette from its logo based on an anti-religion group’s legal threat is now on hold after the move triggered a deluge of opposition.
Unveiled in December 2011 but not yet officially adopted, the logo was blasted by the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation as implying Steubenville is a “theocracy” because the distinctive cross atop the Catholic university’s Christ the King Chapel was included alongside several architectural silhouettes, including Historic Fort Steuben and the Veterans Memorial Bridge.
The foundation’s Annie Laurie Gaylor told the Steubenville Herald-Star that “the logo communicates the idea that Steubenville is a theocracy and is a Christian city where non-Christians or non-believers are not favored citizens.”
“We were contacted by a citizen of Steubenville, because this is clearly an unconstitutional issue,” she said. really? What about the 1st amendment that guarantees us freedom of religion?
