INGLIS, Fla, January 25, 2002 (LSN.ca) – The American Civil Liberties Union has threatened a federal lawsuit against Carolyn Risher, the mayor of a small Florida town for her proclamation banning Satan within the town limits. Fox News reports that Risher, described as a devout Christian who has been mayor for nine years, wrote up an official proclamation banning Satan on Halloween and had it posted on all entrances to the town.
ACLU claims it was acting on behalf of Polly Bowser, a woman in the town who was upset with the proclamation. However the woman says she is unsure whether or not to support the lawsuit. The ACLU however, says it will act as plaintiff if the woman refuses involvement.
