Atheist Activist Supports Easter Service and Cross In Daley Plaza

Yesterday's Chicago Daily Herald reported that atheist activist Rob Sherman has praised the city of Chicago for permitting the Thomas More Society to put up a 19 foot cross in Daley Plaza for its sunrise Easter service today. Sherman says he backs the right of individuals to engage in private religious speech in public. He only objects to government supported expressions of religion. [Thanks to Scott Mange for the lead.]
