Only in America, it seems, we have decided that 'tolerance' requires us to post a sign viciously attacking religious beliefs alongside symbols of religious belief.

Anti-faith 'rant' will stay, says Wash. governor

As Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver explains, the holiday display in the state Capitol includes a Christmas tree, nativity scene, menorah.
"Next to those three symbols is a rant by the Freedom From Religion Foundation, purportedly to celebrate the Winter Solstice -- but it doesn't do anything of the kind," says the Christian attorney. "It's a rant against the existence of God. It claims that there is no god, [that] there are no angels or devils or heaven or hell, and that reason should prevail."
Governor Chris Gregoire does not have to permit the atheist sign because it must meet the theme of the display, which it does not, says Staver. The sign, he says, is totally out of place because the other three items are symbols -- not attacks on other religions and their holidays.
Matt Staver"It's absolutely outrageous that this sign is there," Staver asserts, "and we ought to call on the governor to remove this travesty."
The governor said she has no choice but to allow the sign -- a stance Liberty Counsel labels as "erroneous."
