The “Let Reason Prevail” Banner in a Maine Town Has Been Stolen

It was just a few days ago when a “Let Reason Prevail” sign went up in Sanford, Maine:

At this Season of the Winter Solstice, LET REASON PREVAIL. There are not gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth & superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.

That sign went up after a resident pointed out the Nativity scene in the town square. Tom Waddell, seen in that picture, alerted the Freedom From Religion Foundation and received permission from the town to put up his own sign.

We learned today that the banner has been stolen:

After being on display for less than one week, the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s Winter Solstice banner was stolen on December 30 from a public park in Sanford, Maine.

FFRF reported the theft to the police and is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator(s).

It’s the third atheist banner that’s been stolen this year, according to FFRF.

I guess now that Christmas is over, some people think God’s taking a break from watching them?
