The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, which advocates for a strict enforcement of separation of church and state, has announced that the Onalaska Police Department has complied with its demands that it remove the prayer display from the wall of a public room in a local police station.

And whenever I am called to do always thankful I will be that You have been the unseen guest walking next to me."
