UPDATE – 10:12 A.M. (Notes location of mural in the municipal building)

A mural in the Findlay Municipal Building has attracted the attention of an activist organization. The Freedom From Religion Foundation recently sent a letter to Clerk of Courts David Spridgeon. It calls for Spridgeon to remove a mural that features an eagle and a verse from Psalms 91 that reads, “Under His Wings Shall You Find Refuge.”

The foundation claims the mural shows government sponsorship of religious messages. The letter says the message “alienates the 24 percent of adult Americans who are non-religious.”

The mural is not in the court itself. Director of court operations David Beach says the mural is on the third floor, while the court is on the second floor.
