The street, “Seven in Heaven Way,” was officially dedicated last weekend in Brooklyn outside the firehouse where the firefighters once served. The ceremony was attended by dozens of firefighters, city leaders and widows of the fallen men.

“There should be no signage or displays of religious nature in the public domain,” said Ken Bronstein, president of New York City Atheists. “It’s really insulting to us.” Bronstein told Fox News Radio that his organization was especially concerned with the use of the word “heaven.” “We’ve concluded as atheists there is no heaven and there’s no hell,” he said.

Hey brother notice this was further down in the article.

Quote:

David Silverman, president of American Atheists, agreed calling on the city to remove the sign. “It implies that heaven actually exists,” Silverman told Fox News Radio.
Quote:


It seems they are really worried about something that to them doesn't exist.

They say that they will sue over this sign if the word "heaven" is not removed.

These people are a sad case.

Wait up Matt, didn't you see the part where it said that they'd concluded that there's no heaven? That settles it right? Atheists just have to agree that something isn't real and it instantly becomes fact.
