Those Merry Atheists


The Badger Herald reports that the Madison-based Freedom From Religion Foundation posted a sign in the Wisconsin state Capitol this week to remind residents that they live in a diverse country.

The sign is located in the same vicinity as the Wisconsin State Capitol Holiday Tree and menorah and reads, “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.”

The sign promotes a nonreligious worldview and calls for freedom of beliefs, FFRF co-president Dan Barker said.

“People who disagree with the sign will find it offensive, like how some people [at FFRF] think the nativity scene is offensive,” Barker said. “If people think [the sign] is offensive, we’re happy with that.”
