A small white cross is sparking a big battle over church-state separatism in Searcy, Ark., where the Freedom From Religion Foundation is demanding that a local police chief remove the religious symbol from public property.
The cross was planted in the ground outside the Searcy Police Department before Police Chief Jeremy Clark started in his current position last year.
Clark told KARK-TV that he had no idea how it got there, but that he has no plans to remove it, despite the Wisconsin-based atheist group’s prodding.
