‘Let Reason Prevail’ Banner Stolen in Virginia

This is the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s “Let Reason Prevail” banner nearby a public Nativity scene in Manassas, Virginia a week before Christmas:

This is the same banner a few days ago:

What’s that? You don’t see it? That’s because it was stolen.

A report was filed with police Dec. 29 after the banner turned up missing. Zip ties attached to the posts were all that were left.

It was permitted to be displayed through Dec. 31.

FFRF is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the successful prosecution of the person or persons responsible.

It was the fifth time in December that an FFRF solstice banner was stolen or vandalized. All told, 12 banners were placed.

Right now, there are no leads. (And no plans to install video cameras at future banner sites.)
