JUDGE WHO REFUSED COURT WITH CRUCIFIX ACQUITTED, WILL SPEAK AT AACON XXXV APRIL, 2009
FOLLOWING A THREE year legal battle, an Italian judge who had been sentenced to seven months in prison and suspension of judicial privileges because he refused to hold court under the Christian crucifix has been acquitted (see story below).
Judge Luigi Tosti will be speaking at the 35th National Convention of American Atheists in Atlanta, Georgia April 9-12, 2009. Tosti will be telling the story of how he defied the illegal promotion of sectarian religious symbolism in the otherwise-secular Italian judicial system, and was helped, in part, through an international campaign of conscience on his behalf.

* RICHARD DAWKINS, evolutionist and author of “The God Delusion”
