Default Christian group defends atheist over windown sign

Wonder if many atheists would so eagerly defend Christians if the shoe was on the other foot?

Quote:
"The Christian Institute and the National Secular Society are speaking out on behalf of an 89-year-old atheist who claims he was threatened with arrest for posting in the window of his home a sign suggesting religion is a fairy tale. The organisations see the case as an example of why the Public Order Act needs to be revised."

... The Christian Institute, insisting that the authorities often misuse the Public Order Act, suggested that many Christians in Britain would "sympathise strongly" with Richards.

Unless there's some sort of freaky-deeky zoning laws broken, I don't see the problem...

I don't either, and I think that sort of thinking is why the Christian group also supported the atheists' rights.
