An outspoken Chicago-area atheist who successfully fought Illinois' "moment of silence" in public schools has threatened to sue a group restoring an 11-story cross on southern Illinois' highest point if it doesn't repay $20,000 it got from the state.
Oh. Wait, the state gave them $20,000 for this piece of crap? So, when the state, and the country in general, is facing a huge deficit, public service sector layoffs, and school closing, this group of wayward hillbillies has taken $20,000 of Illinois money to pay for a giant cross?
I think we can find something better to do with the $20,000, like painting all of the trashcans in Alto Pass a darker shade of green.
