    Guest: Battle for a Religious Symbol Heats Up In Rhode Island


    The Battle for a Religious Symbol Heats Up In Rhode Island The Freedom from Religion Foundation is demanding that a Rhode Island city remove the cross from a 91-year-old memorial honoring its fallen soldiers, including three brothers killed in World War I. Woonsocket Mayor Leo Fontaine says he will not remove the cross " under any circumstances ." Shay Dawkins, a biblical scholar, rides both sides of the fence while taking-on some of the most controversial subjects dividing Americans today. He weighs in on the side of the city. In this case, he says, “This organization represents intolerance and unfair judgment… I would warn this atheist organization to not become an intolerant religion, itself.” About Shay Dawkins Shay Dawkins, a self-proclaimed Christian, is a biblical scholar who believes that whether a Hindu, Jew, Muslim, Christian or non-believer, we should all aspire for a nation based on unified principals that excludes the special interests of one group and considers what is best for of all citizens, regardless of religious affiliation. He has brought his signature qualities of dedication, incisive analysis, critical thinking skills and effective communication to this argument in his book  T he Good News: How Revealing Delusions in Christianity Will Bring Peace to All  ( ). He is currently working on the second book in the Dawkins Truth series Russ Handler Publicity Campaign Manager (TV Specialist) News and Experts 3748 Turman Loop #101 Wesley Chapel, FL  33544 Phone: 727-443-7115 Ext. 224 If you would no longer like to receive guest ideas from me simply send an email to and I will have you removed from my address book.
