SHOULD ATHEIST RESTRICT NEW YORK'S FINEST FROM A HAVING A STREET NAMED IN THEIR HONOR?
Seven firefighters from New York City’s Engine 202, Ladder 101 died on 9/11. Now, part of a road in Red Hook, Brooklyn has been renamed “Seven in Heaven Way” in honor of their sacrifice. But the move has angered a group of local atheists who claim that “It’s improper for the city to endorse the view that Heaven exists.” They feel offended and proclaim that their constitutional rights under the 1st amendment have been violated.
Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Does the Honoring of these brave men DENY the 1st Amendment of the our Constitution? Do ATHEIST have justification to remove this sign honoring New York's Finest?
