Story here.

Religious disputes are like arguments in a madhouse over which inmate really is Napoleon.

Who wants to take bets on how long it will be before it's vandalized?

I'm guessing before the unveiling ceremony is over.

I don't even think it's real...Looks kinda shopped.

and yeah who designed it? I know Atheism is not as known for patronage of the arts as say the church, but I think we could do better than that.

I am all for it. It's in a "free speech zone" and there is a religious one right next to it.

It makes sense that it should be there.

I want to see more public displays, until there are enough to match the religious ones.

Why should there be only religious ones? There shouldn't be!!!! Exclamation

It IS ugly. A short drive from here. Surprised coworkers haven't brought it up. Personally, I'd like the Hindus to erect a Hanuman shrine.

What's with the design??

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.

I get the feeling they wanted lots of space for the writing. An obelisk would have done the trick & would be classier.
