FORT COLLINS, Colo., Dec. 3 (UPI) -- The Larimer County, Colo., sheriff is allowing two groups of atheists to hang a sign during his annual Christmas tree-trimming party, group members said.

Colorado Coalition of Reason head Marvin Straus said Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden gave permission for the group, as well as Leaders in Freethought, to erect a sign at the holiday party that drew nearly 300 people in 2008, the Denver Post said Thursday.

"To our absolute delight, he offered to share some space with us," Straus said. "When I got off the floor and got my heart started again, we began planning."

Alderden said he granted the groups the right to erect a sign at Saturday's holiday party
after the groups sought to have the annual display taken down.

"I told them I got a big, empty spot out there just for the atheists," said Alderden, who added he wants to remain open to all beliefs.

"During this winter-solstice season, illuminate your mind with reason. Let friends and family warm your heart. And celebrate that we all take part. The Colorado Coalition of Reason," the sign reads.

Nice to see a place willing to give equal time to all parties.

better than the alternative, right?

Nice that the sign they chose wasn't insulting or bitter.

I quite like it.
