The City of Steubenville has had its current logo for years, but now all of a sudden it has become a hot topic.
Some are calling the logo controversial. The city has been called to remove the cross and chapel belonging to the Franciscan University of Steubenville from their logo or face a lawsuit, a threat made by the Freedom of Religion Foundation. The foundation claims it does not follow the separation of church and state.
One councilman disagrees and says there should be more religion instead of less.
Officials at Franciscan University are outraged by the group's threat.
"This is not the promotion of one religion over another or the promotion of any religion," said Franciscan University spokesman Tom Sofio. "It's the city choosing very identifiable progress leaders to put on their logo."
Some city residents do not want to see the logo change. One resident said she did not consider the logo offensive and that they need to bring things back instead of taking them away.
Franciscan University says they will keep the cross and chapel in their logo. As for the city, they have been instructed by Law Director Geary Repella to remove it or they could face costly court battles, spending money the financially strapped city does not have.
