Atheist Group’s Displays Go Up in Wisconsin State Capitol

If you visit the Wisconsin Capitol building over the next month, be sure to catch the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s Winter Solstice message, which is up for the 20th time:

[On Front]

At this season of
THE WINTER SOLSTICE
may 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.

[On Back]

The World’s Need

So many gods, so many creeds,
So many paths that wind and wind,
When just the art of being kind
Is all this sad world needs.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Keep State and Church Separate!

In addition to that sign, there’s also a secular “nativity,” featuring Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams… with the part of Jesus played by the Bill of Rights.

A sign next to that display reads:

Happy Winter Solstice. At this Season of the Winter Solstice, we honor reason and the Bill of Rights (adopted Dec. 15, 1791).

Thou shalt not steal, please.

Let’s hope people listen to that Commandment.
