Freedom From Religion Foundation objects to Green Bay mayor's efforts on Papal visit

UNDATED (WRN)  Freedom From Religion Foundation co-founder Annie Laurie Gaylor says they object to Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt's invitation to Pope Francis to do a pilgrimage to the nearby Marian shrine. Now Gaylor says they have e-mails showing the Mayor violating city policy that requires a distinction between personal and city views...as he coordinates efforts to attract the pontiff.

Gaylor says residents need to know what Schmitt's doing rather than addressing other important issues.

She adds that a visit by the Pope doesn't really add to economic development, but costs taxpayers millions of dollars in security.
