For years now, the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) has been making headlines for its efforts to ensure that public spaces remain free of any type of religious imagery.

Whether it's Ten Commandments monuments in schools or “In God We Trust” stickers on police cruisers, the group has threatened legal action against towns across the U.S. in order to prevent any such display.

Austin motorcyclist sues officers for taking photos of his tattoos

An Austin motorcyclist is suing three police officers who he says forced him to lift his shirt and bare his skin during a traffic stop this month so they could photograph his tattoos.

Kristopher Cody King, 34, says his civil rights were violated Dec. 13 when police pulled him over on Koenig Lane for failing to signal a turn on his motorcycle. King, who was not cited in the incident, says the officers told him to consent to the photos or they would take him to jail and take them there.

The suit, filed Thursday in federal court by attorney Millie Thompson, lists officer Dane O’Neill and two other officers as defendants. O’Neill, according to the lawsuit, peppered King with questions about patches on his vest and his biker affiliations. The other officers were not identified in the lawsuit because their identities were unknown.

Motorcycle clubs buy gifts for hundreds of Christmas Angels

PHOENIX (KPHO/KTVK) - (video)

Generosity came pouring out of a Walmart in Mesa. A group of motorcycle riders took all of the tags off the Christmas Angel tree there and started crossing things off their list.

A dozen different clubs rode to the Walmart at Mesa Riverview to open up their hearts and their wallets.

"I love it. I love it. It's a good thing for the kids, man," one rider said.

They take a Christmas Angel tag off the tree, and each tag represents a child. It includes their name, age, clothing size, and wish list. 

"Carlos, he's 14, and wants a bike," said another rider. "It says clothes too, but let's be honest, they want a bike." 

"Now, I got to get some shoes," another told us.

God’s biker: Polish Catholic priest just wants to read Scripture with outlaw bikies

BRISBANE Catholic priest Fr Andrzej Kolaczkowski likes nothing more than spending time in fellowship with outlaw bikie club members, sharing the Gospel.

“There’s something really refreshing when you sit down and do Bible study …  with a bunch of hairy bikers full of tattoos. There’s nothing more refreshing to the faith,” he said.

“It is about being a shepherd, it is about looking after those who are lost.”

Dressed in bikie leathers and straddling a classic Victory Crossroads motorcycle it is hard at first to recognise Fr Kolaczkowski as the parish priest at Bowen Hills’ Our Lady of Victories Church and chaplain to the Polish community in Brisbane archdiocese.

However, Fr Kolaczkowski is following a lifelong passion for motorbikes and using his hobby to serve the Lord.

Chopperfest showcases motorcycle art, culture

Now in its 13th year, Chopperfest is a tribute to legendary artist David Mann, and a celebration of the art and culture of the motorcycle.

“David spent a lot of time in Ventura County and painted scenes of the The Shores bar and Mugu Rock in a couple (of) paintings,” said Chopperfest event coordinator Tory DuVarney. “He loved Ventura County, which was why he wanted to be married here.”

In 1997, David and Jacquie Mann were married at the Ventura Fairgrounds during a motorcycle swap meet produced by local businessman and motorcycle enthusiast David "Huggy Bear" Hansen.

Owner of The Shop, an antique Indian and Harley-Davidson motorcycle shop, Hansen has been in business 45 years and produces Chopperfest, while his son, Tory DuVarney, owner of Beautiful Disaster & Handsome Devil Clothing Boutique, says it’s an honor and privilege to be its coordinator. Chopperfest is Dec. 11 at the Ventura Fairgrounds, where Mann married his sweetheart 19 years ago.

Bikers claim Rosebud Hotel discriminated against them after Peninsula Toy Run

BIKERS enjoying a drink after a Christmas toy run are claiming discrimination after they were asked to move to the back bar of a peninsula hotel.

The bikers, who had distributed about $5000 worth of toys on the annual charity Peninsula Toy Run on Saturday, also claim the group of about 15 riders were asked to remove their vests so they wouldn’t “upset” families.

They are now calling on people to boycott the Rosebud Hotel, and set up a Facebook page over the weekend to protest their alleged treatment.

“We just wanted one drink and were sitting out the front because it was a warm day,” Southern Social Club Riders member Wendy Powney said.

“We were just sitting there, we weren’t loud or swearing.”

Warren man charged with deadly biker gang shooting

WARREN, Ohio -

A Warren man faces charges filed in connection with a shooting involving local biker gangs that left two people dead and three others wounded at a Warren Township bar.

The Trumbull County Grand jury on Tuesday indicted 48-year-old James Gardner on one count of aggravated murder and two counts of felonious assault.

The charges stem from the June shooting incident at Shorty's Place on Highland Avenue.

Robert Marto, 54 and Jason Moore, 41, both members of the Brothers Regime, were killed.

Forty-five-year-old David Bailes, Jr. of Leavittsburg as well as two members of the Brother's Regime, Andrew Claypool and Walter Hughes were wounded in the shooting.

Bailes, a member of FTW, was charged with murder following the shootings. However, those charges have been dismissed according to Warren Municipal Court records.
