FFRF gets a win but I must ask - What were those Georgia judges thinking?

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.
