Crowd Rallies Against Sign At State Capitol

OLYMPIA, Wash. - An estimated crowd of several hundred people flocked to the state Capitol for a Sunday protest against a holiday display that disparages religion and claims there is no God.

The display - a "winter solstice" sign sponsored by the atheistic Freedom from Religion Foundation - calls religion "myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds."

State officials had allowed the anti-religion placard to be displayed during the holidays at the Capitol, along with a Christian nativity scene and a decorated Christmas tree, in response to a lawsuit filed over seasonal religious displays on state property.
