Two days later, that banner was vandalized:
“After a stake pole was vandalized, our banner was blowing around the median,” said FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor. “We urge police to investigate this tampering. The Freedom From Religion Foundation has opposed using this median strip for religious displays not only as a constitutional violation, but a traffic hazard.
The Foundation is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the responsible party or parties, said Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor.
“‘Thou shalt not steal’ is one of the tenets that people who typically oppose FFRF supposedly live by,” Gaylor said. “I guess it’s all part of the war on reason.”
The banner is valued at more than $100. The Foundation is replacing it with another.
A police report was filed. But, unlike what happened in Pennsylvania, no one has confessed yet.
