A victory for ALL of our rights

"Taking personal offense is not an injury that warrants invoking the power of the courts to shut down everything you disagree with,” Baxter also said. “The Constitution is not a personal tool for censoring everyone’s beliefs but your own.”

This is from the ruling of a federal appeals court to the American Atheists who have been suing for 3 years to have a cross removed from the site of the World Trade Center attack in 9/11.

See, the thing is, I don't care if someone is Atheist.  I really don't, that is their business.  I don't care who they love, who they marry.  It just isn't any of my business.

But, when you attack everything upon which this country was founded and attack MY religious freedom, then you start to wake up a sleeping giant. Or the 85% of this country who identify as being Cnristian.

It is kinda like bombing Pearl Harbor and then getting annihilated by Americans

The American Atheists have sued, for 3 years, to have a cross removed form the site of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center which took over 3,000 innocent American lives.


They are offended.

Being offended isn't a reason to sue.  And it isn't a reason to stop all displays, public or private, with which you disagree.  And, a court in America is upholding that basic idea of freedom.  This could be one baby step toward a return to sanity.
