The Ellettsville Town Seal is divided into four quadrants, one of which has a cross and the words "In God we trust" on it. To which they object. So, the town's being threatened with a lawsuit.

I would write a more passionate post on this, but the little pismires who spend their time and resources suing folks for public symbols that few people even notice aren't worth more words than this.
