Christkindlmarket in Downtown Chicago Now Includes an Atheist Banner and a Giant Scarlet “A”

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 yesterday:

The whole thing was put up by the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s Metropolitan Chicago chapter. It includes an 8.5-foot-tall Scarlet A and this banner:

“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.”

Both items will be up through December 28!

This is the second year of the group’s display. Last year, there were a few vocal critics, but it didn’t get any worse than that.
