“We’d vastly prefer to keep religion — and irreligion — out of the seat of state government. The Capitol ought to be above the fray of religious divisiveness. But if public officials unwisely decide to permit religious public forums, then there must be ‘room at the inn’ for nonbelievers,” FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor explained.
Last year’s atheist invasion caused the Capitol to revisit their rules. Displays this year will be allowed up for one week only. Last year, all displays were permitted indefinitely. The banner will be displayed Dec. 8 through Dec. 15, FFRF’s second choice of dates.
You know, at the rate we’re going, we’re eventually going to see a holiday display without any Christian presence at all.
Maybe then, government officials will finally take the hint.
