My old home state, Washington (uh, I’ve got the right one, right? This isn’t DC, I hope), is waging the war on Christmas, as is appropriate for one of the most godless states in the country. The FFRF has put up a sign nestled among the religious symbols at the Capitol:
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.
I’m impressed with the guy who put up a nativity scene, too: he says the atheist sign doesn’t bother him, and that free speech is great. That’s what we need more of — mutual elbow room and tolerance.
Oh, and there’s also a tree, only it’s not a Christmas tree. It’s the Capitol Holiday Kids Tree. I like it.
Not everyone is happy, though: one cranky commentator spills a little bile, and then ironically snarks about the holiday spirit. So not everyone in the state is enlightened, but then there are always a few kooks on the fringe.
