The Atheists have a sign, but no Manger...

Good morning, Netizens...

The picture of this sign is real. Although we still have a Christmas Tree slated for the Capital Building in Olympia, Washington, the Nativity Scene which had been there on display for years is now gone, verboten, forbidden. Instead we have a Christmas Tree and the sign in the picture, brought to you by the Atheists.

I agree they have the right to have such a detestable sign present in our State Capital Building, but I have the same Constitutional Right to have a creche, a humble manger scene, as my personal celebration of Christmas present in the Capital Building. I have rights, too, dammit!

If we had the lawyers in charge back when Jesus was born in the manger, the Birth of the Christ Child probably would have never happened. Instead we would have had a sign similar to what is above, and an empty manger occupied by jackasses and perhaps a cow. However, they would have had to make their own peace with God to have a star shining down on their sign.

They apparently didn't have that kind of clout.
