A national organization has asked the city of Frankenmuth to take down a 55-foot cross erected in the late 1970s in a public park.

MLive.com reports Monday that Washington D.C.-based Americans United for Separation of Church and State first sent a letter seeking the cross' removal from Cross Park to the city in July. A response is expected by the end of this week.

The organization says the cross in the park across from Bronner's Christmas Wonderland violates the U.S. Constitution.

MLive reports that the Frankenmuth Parks and Recreation website states the white cross "is a tribute to the religious background of the Frankenmuth community."

Frankenmuth, about 75 miles northwest of Detroit, is represented by the Ann Arbor-based Thomas More Law Center.
