121. no problem with the sign itself BUT.....
The point of the display with a menorah, a nativity and other religious symbols from the competing brands of religion is actually a pretty cool message of tolerance - bringing them all together. The sign for the atheist group is actually doing what atheist decry about religion - It draws lines in the sand and literally states that the others are all wrong and only their way is right. Now a sign promoting, peace and secular harmony would be cool. But a sign pushing an agenda about religious beliefs (organized atheism has in its own funny way become a religion - a big club that dogmatically think they are right and everyone else is wrong) has no more place at the capitol than a sign saying jesus is the only way or a little guillotine to make sure everyone entering is circumcised (moyle-o-matic - patent pending)
