My State is Insane

I don't understand something.

If Atheism is the belief in nothing then why are should they be allowed to post hateful signs against a Nativity scene at the state capital? I mean, they aren't celebrating anything. Christmas has nothing to do with any sort of atheist celebration (is there such a thing?).

If some Wiccans or Pagans wanted to put up a Winter Solstice celebration scene I'd be ambivalent about it.

But our governor, in all her wisdom (hahahaha), decided to let these assholes post a sign that says in part...
"There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds."

The guy in charge of this Atheist protest says that he just wants their place at the table. WHY? The "winter" season has nothing at all to do with Atheism. Christmas? Yes. Hanukkah? Yes. Ramadan? Sometimes...that one seems to move around. Even the stupid cult holiday of Kwanza has more legitimacy than this stunt.

This is not about freedom of speech. No one is asking for them to be "silenced" but the decision to allow their hate filled anti-religion sign is yet another war on Christmas act. It defies logic. Which is what government is good at I suppose.

Bill O'Reilly talked about it on his show last night (not that I watch it ... hubby told me and they talked about it on the radio this morning) and even gave out the governor's phone number, which I thought was hilarious.

I hope they take the sign down. It's disgraceful and distracting in this season ... which is supposed to be about helping others, celebrating the birth of Christ, and Santa. =)
