Atheists demand a God-free Capitol visitors center

I was thinking about posting on this but The Future American beat me to it:

It’s amusing when we must rely on our Canadian friends like this blogger for some perspective on separation of church and state in America. But as she seems to understand, America was founded on the principle of freedom *of* religion, not freedom *from* religion. On the other hand, it does not strike me as an injustice if the Capitol visitors’ center doesn’t happen to mention God, either. Both sides are playing games here. If the Capitol architect is really clever, he’ll sell McDonald’s the right to cover the place with advertising and welcome visitors to the “McCapitol Visitor’s Center”. Both sides will be so outraged that they’ll forget all about the God issue 🙂
