On Sunday, members of the Secular Coalition for Massachusetts put up a fairly innocuous banner in the Boston Common area:
Rangers took it down the following day, even though the atheists had a permit, so the group put it back up on Tuesday.
Then, on Wednesday, they saw that it had been slashed:
They’ve taped it back up, but it still makes you wonder what was so offensive about the phrase “Reason’s Greetings” that someone felt the need to destroy the banner.
If someone’s going to vandalize the sign over a message that harmless, you might as well go even edgier next year.
