Ask The Times: Streator City Park displays

Q. There's a display of crosses set up in Streator City Park for Easter. Has any non-Christian group been allowed to erect displays in the park?

A. Yes. In April 2012, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, based in Wisconsin, placed a banner in City Park that said, "Nobody died for our sins. Jesus Christ is a myth." City officials have previously said they treat City Park as a public forum and allow groups of various beliefs to share their displays as long as they file requests and get approval from the city.
