Cross at park will not be removed after atheists complain

The city of Neosho said in a news release Friday that a white cross will remain at Big Spring Park despite an “anti-religion” group’s request to have it removed.

The cross has been displayed at the park since April 1930, said the release.

A spokesman for the city declined to comment on the issue, referring the News-Leader to the news release, which was posted on the city’s Facebook page.

The group that requested the removal of the cross appears to be The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a Wisconsin-based non-profit organization. NEWS LEADER
