WTRF.com UPDATEThere are new developments in the Steubenville logo controversy as an activist group now warns the city to back off in the fight over whether religious symbols should be taken off its logo.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation on Thursday cautioned the city of Steubenville not to risk taxpayers' money by opposing the effort by the group .
The Madison, Wis.-based group has threatened to sue if it doesn't happen.
Earlier this week, city officials didn't take any action at a council meeting to remove the symbols on the logo.
The city's logo features the cross and silhouette of the Christ the King Chapel on the Franciscan University of Steubenville campus.
The controversy over the City of Steubenville's unofficial logo continued in the regular meeting of City Council Tuesday night.
Residents packed council chambers to address the removal of a cross and an image of Franciscan University of Steubenville's Christ the King chapel from that logo.
Several council members have come out against the removal.
Knights of Columbus representative Marshall Myers even presented City Manager Cathy Davidson with a petition containing over 300 signatures.
"I feel that it doesn't push any particular belief, it just shows who we are in this city. But ... Obviously, we're Catholics, and we're passionate about our faith. So, we feel, 'Why should an outside organization be allowed to dictate what the citizens of this city desire?'' said Myers.
Myers also told council they collected the signatures after Masses over the weekend at St. Peter Catholic Church.
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.
Officials from the City of Steubenville met with attorney representing four law firms for over two hours on Tuesday regarding a possible lawsuit over their unofficial logo.
The city was moved to do this after receiving threats from the group "Freedom From Religion Foundation" because their logo contains a cross and silhouette of Franciscan University.
The attorneys in Tuesdays meeting are considered experts in the field of constitutional law and tonight they offered up council to the city on what their options would be if a lawsuit would be filed.
City Law Director Gary Repella said that within the next week or two council will meet again and choose a firm or combination of firms and then make a decision on what they'll do with the cross.
He said the city has received two letters from the group threatening the city. Since that time they have been reviewing the law and Tuesday was an opportunity to talk to experts so they could give the city some ideas on what the outcome would be in a case like this.
City Officials have been advised by the different attorneys they heard from today to not comment on the situation.
