Leaders of a central Georgia city say they’ll remove a Christian flag flying over City Hall.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday  that Cochran city officials voted, against the advice of the city attorney, to fly a Christian flag over City Hall.

The move prompted a response by the Washington-based Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
