Freedom from Religion Foundation angered over Schmitt's invite to Pope Francis

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A Wisconsin group says the mayor of Green Bay has no business inviting Pope Francis to his area.

Madison's Freedom from Religion Foundation has told Jim Schmitt that his recent invitation to the pontiff is, "grossly inappropriate."

While he's in the country, Mayor Schmitt is inviting him to see the Catholic Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion. He's also encouraging the pope to hold a Mass at Green Bay's 80,000 seat Lambeau Field.
