An Atheist Banner and Giant Scarlet “A” Display Are Back Up in Downtown Chicago

If you’re in Chicago and walking through Christkindlmarket in Daley Plaza, make sure you take some pictures next to the atheist display that just went up:

DCP Winter 2017

The whole thing was put up by the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s Metropolitan Chicago chapter. It includes that 8.5-foot-tall Scarlet A and a banner featuring a secular Nativity scene of sorts:

“At this season of the Winter Solstice, we celebrate the birth of the Unconquered Sun — the TRUE reason for the season. As Americans, let us also honor the birth of our Bill of Rights, which reminds us there can be no freedom OF religion, without having freedom FROM religion in government.”

It’s the fifth straight year of the group’s displays.
