It reminds me of what Dave Silverman said so emphatically in his talk in Orlando - don’t litigate unless you’re sure you’ll win, because losing is really bad. Losing makes things worse.
This is really bad.

Where the redefinition of atheism as a lack of belief in God breaks down in light of the evidence. A clandestine object in the middle of nowhere has the power to keep atheists up at night. Why does it matter if there is no deity? Most theists agree that it silly that a grilled cheese sandwich becomes a pricey commodity if a recognizable pattern emerges.
Certainly this object was not intended as a middle finger to non-Christians. Funny how the only people who believe that message are those who claim to value science and evidence as the only method of knowing.
It’s not believers who are making you feel bad. You feel bad for some reason, and blame it on some inanimate object that only means something in your imagination. So you rally the troops through rhetorical analogies. The Supreme Court didn’t buy it. And they do put importance on evidence. Guess there wasn’t any good evidence to support your right to not be offended by something that you don’t believe exists, huh?
