Atheists assert in a lawsuit that the very existence of the Ground Zero Cross causes them mental pain, headaches and indigestion. They are expressing additional mental and physical anguish with yesterday’s decision handed down by a three-judge panel of the Second US Circuit Court of appeals.
Remember House Resolution 535, a non-binding resolution declaring 2012 the Year of the Bible, passed unanimously in the State House on January 28th. Since then some liberal Democrats said the resolution was sneaked passed them and hidden in amongst several other bills and they would not have voted for it if they’d known it was there. According to the Philadelphia Weekly State Representatives Babette Josephs and Mark Cohen “and others” have apologized for their vote to declare 2012 the Year of the Bible.
