David Silverman, president of American Atheists, stands on a Ten Commandments and says why he thinks it shouldn't be there after Eric Hovind (not pictured), with Creation Today, stood on the new Atheist bench and preached his beliefs during the unveiling of an Atheist monument outside the Bradford County Courthouse on Saturday, June 29, 2013 in Stark, Fla. The New Jersey-based group American Atheists unveiled the 1,500-bound granite bench Saturday as a counter to the religious monument in what's called a free speech zone. Group leaders say they believe it's the first such atheist monument on government property. About 200 people attended the event.(AP Photo/The Gainesville Sun, Matt Stamey)
