Kali, Fuck; This Gets Old

I'll say what I always say about this kind of nonsense. There is no role for religion on government property. And it's beyond pathetic in these times of state, county, and municipal cut-backs on basic services such as education, police forces, and firefighting, to see politicians waste time and resources on this nonsense. But when the xians demand that their commandments go up on town property, I support Pagans demanding their due. Because it makes the point. And, apparently, that point needs to be made over and over.

At any rate, it will be interesting to see what happens at the press conference and the mayor does seem to be backing down from his previous position, at least a tiny bit.

Love this story! Agree that religion and state should not mix . . . but would still love to see the Wiccan Rede in a town square.

Did you see the comment (I believe that it was posted at the Wild Hunt but could be mistaken!) that the plaque that COULD and SHOULD be posted at these types of places is the Bill of Rights. Interesting suggestion!
