Atheist display adorns Daley Plaza near Christmas tree, menorah

bigAAtheists now have a spot in Chicago’s busiest public center.

Wedged between a nativity scene and a towering menorah at Daley Plaza sits an 8 1/2-foot-tall letter “A.”

The display was put there by the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation to counterbalance the religious displays.

25 years ago, a federal judge ruled that religious displays could be erected outside the Daley Center if maintained by private groups, which they are.
