Letter: Library display criticized

Published:

 

Upon entering the Cascade Park Community Library near the Firstenburg Community Center, I was disturbed by the blatant promotion of atheist/secular humanist authors and books displayed prominently in the front window. Included were atheist authors such as Richard Dawkins, Bill Nye, Christopher Hitchens, with books titled "Living Without God," "The Portable Atheist," and "Women Without Superstition" were featured.

I was thinking to myself, is this even constitutional from an American First Amendment perspective? Also, even if it is legal, is this something the taxpayers of Vancouver would approve of, considering it is their millions in tax revenue that keep the library up and running?
