Q: Should Crosses Be Part Of Chaplain Badges?

Item: Crosses to be removed from police chaplain badges/Karen Dorn Steele, Spokesman-Review

More Info: Crosses will be removed from badges worn by Spokane Police chaplains under terms of an out-of-court settlement between the city and a former Lutheran pastor-turned-atheist who sued over the government agency’s use of the insignias and Christian prayers.

Frank Sennett/Hard 7: This isn’t about disrespecting anyone’s religion. In fact, it’s about respecting everyone’s faith—and respecting the appropriate separation of church and state. More here.

Question: What do you think of this settlement?
