FFRF Objects To Town Sign Reading "Jesus Welcomes You"

KETK News reports today that Freedom From Religion Foundation has written the Hawkins, Texas City Council objecting to a large sign apparently put up by the city on city land reading "Jesus Welcomes You To Hawkins." FFRF says the sign violates the Establishment Clause, and that even if the city leases out  the land on which the sign sits, this will not cure the violation. Hawkins, located in east Texas, has a population of 1,278.
