Not to worry. Bloomie will see that it’s overturned.
Ditto what you said. And a judge at that! Yikes!
The should have housed it in front of the Mosque near ground zero.
I am shocked.
I am so blown away there is some one in NY with sanity.
Atheists don’t ralize that their atheism symbol equates to “nothingness”. Hell....that’s everywhere and nowhere.

Well, she certainly made the right decision, and probably for the right reasons. But it’s sad that she had to pretend that the cross has no religious meaning and is purely secular. That’s bunk.
It certainly had religious meaning for the people who put it there, and I think the judge knows it. But in the backward world we currently live in, she’s not allowed to speak the truth.
God Bless you Judge Batts! A very sane, reasoned ruling. It’s sad nobody can do ANYTHING anymore without there being a ‘ruling’ it. Take THAT Mayor Gloomberg.
Don't ever lose hope.
