Atheists Rally To Support Dave Kong and John Messina In Their Law Suite Against San Francisco

At the highest point in San Francisco, in a public park, the city owns and operates a huge Christian symbol. At least it did until a court order required removal of the cross. Instead of obeying the lawful court order, the city sold a small parcel of land within the park. Members Dave Kong (California State Director of American Atheists) and John Messina are suing to force the city to "do the right thing." Background on the issue and the law suit can by found in this FlashLine story.

On May 22, 2020, area Atheists rallied in support of Dave and John at the foot of the cross.

Some have claimed the giant cross is a secular monument, but a concrete marker at the foot of the cross clearly shows its religious purpose as a "Sunrise Easter Cross."
