Date Resolved

Elbert County Clerk Dallas Schroeder put up a poster in the Clerk’s office with a Biblical quotation to convey opposition to same-sex marriage. AU wrote to the county to explain that government display of such a poster violates not only the separation of church and state, but also the Equal Protection and Due Process Clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment. We asked the County to remove the sign. The County did not send us an official response, but the sign has since been removed.
