Agreed. This just adds more fuel to the "atheists have no morals" fire.

From what I've been seeing, the secularists have been winning some ground lately as courts have been forcing equal protections of laws that allow religious things on public property.

I think it would be cool to have a hanuman statue put up. Not only you would get controversy you'd also get guff from creationist saying its a evolutionist idol since he looks like a monkey man.

No, they placed a moratorium on the erection of new monuments until after the resolution of the court case against this one.
