Pennsylvania Port Authority Agrees to Pay $60K to Atheist Group
After reaching a lawsuit settlement, the Port Authority of Allegheny, Pennsylvania, has agreed to pay $20,000 plus $40,000 in legal fees to an atheist group that wanted to advertise one of its affiliates on local buses, but was banned from doing so.

What freedom for the flesh. Unfortunately, they will be making the same comment that Anton LeVay made as he lay dying..."oh no, something is wrong...something is very, very wrong".
