From Fox News:
A group of New York City atheists is demanding that the city remove a street sign honoring seven firefighters killed in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks because they said the sign violates the separation of church and state.Bronstein is really insulting to me and to many others, so atheism should be banned, as this philosophy is a violation of the First Amendment. No? Well now, my interpretation is no less extreme than that of the atheist left who has utterly corrupted the intent of the Founding Fathers when they banned "official" or state-sponsored religions. There was never any intent to ban references to religion from the public domain. This is an extreme position that liberal judges have wrongfully forced on the populace in many court cases.
The street, “Seven in Heaven Way,” was officially dedicated last weekend in Brooklyn outside the firehouse where the firefighters once served. The ceremony was attended by dozens of firefighters, city leaders and widows of the fallen men.
“There should be no signage or displays of religious nature in the public domain,” said Ken Bronstein, president of New York City Atheists. “It’s really insulting to us.”
