Atheists furious over Bible near mayor's desk

(Bay News 9) It’s the world’s best-selling book. But one group argues The Bible doesn’t belong in Pinellas Park’s city council chambers publicly displayed next to the mayor’s desk.

The Freedom from Religion Foundation, based out of Wisconsin, wrote a detailed letter addressed to city leaders asking that the Bible be removed.

“It’s on display. And that certainly is improper. It shows an endorsement of the Bible as a holy book over other holy books,” said Annie Laurie Gaylor with the Freedom of Religion Foundation.
