Atheists Lose; County Votes For Crosses

Based on a local source, the San Jacinto Commissioners Court voted 5-0 today to keep cross symbols on their courthouse which had been challenged by the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). This unanimous vote shows that San Jacinto refuses to be swayed by pressure from out of state groups and threats of frivolous lawsuits. Texas Values is proud to have played a part in this victory by sending a letter in support of the crosses, to the Commissioners Court, which was also read during public testimony.  We would like to thank our grassroots supporters who alerted us to this issue and organized on the ground to oppose this measure.

Jonathan Saenz, President of Texas Values said “I am proud of San Jacinto for once again standing strong as a model for all Texans on religious freedom and our U. S. Constitution.”
