“Let Reason Prevail” Banner Goes Up in San Diego Park to Counter Nativity Scene

If you visit San Diego’s Balboa Park this month, be sure to catch a glimpse of this sign from the Freedom From Religion Foundation:

The first is a large banner which contains a secular message, composed by the late Anne Nicol Gaylor, FFRF’s principal founder:

“At this season of the Winter Solstice, let reason prevail.
There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell.
There is only our natural world.
Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.

The second display is a secular Bill of Rights Nativity. The cutout depicts Founders Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, along with the Statue of Liberty, gazing in adoration at a “baby” Bill of Rights. A sign beside the tongue-in-cheek Nativity reads:

“At this Season of the Winter Solstice, join us in honoring the Bill of Rights, adopted on Dec. 15, 1791, which reminds us there can be no religious freedom without the freedom to dissent. It ends with: “Keep religion and government separate!”

The displays are meant to counter a number of religious ones in the same area. The question is whether they’ll stay intact. That “Let Reason Prevail” banner has been vandalized in a number of other cities.
