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.
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.
These blithering idiots This group also intends to push for a New York City ordinance which would make it illegal to say, “God bless you” whenever someone sneezes.
“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.”
Two words. Nut up. Offense, real or, in your case, imagined, pretty much goes with modern life these days so grow a pair and deal with it. Ever seen the sort of anti-Christian crap art my tax dollars pay for? But do you know what’s really offensive? The hundred million corpses atheism racked up last century. Stick a sock in it, Kenny.
