Sheriff under atheist attack over postings

(AJC) A well-known nonprofit organization has accused the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office of promoting Christianity on its Facebook page.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation sent Sheriff Frank Reynolds a letter Oct. 19 that alleged his office used “divisive religious promotion” on occasional posts.

Reynolds posted the letter in full Thursday on his Facebook page. As of Friday afternoon, his post had amassed more than 100 shares and 250 comments.

Sam Grover, associate counsel for the Wisconsin-based FFRF, wrote the letter, which specifically made mention of two posts from Memorial Day and Peace Officers Memorial Day. Grover said a “concerned Cherokee County citizen” contacted the nonprofit about the posts.
