There’s a new Christmas decoration at the Statehouse this year. And it’s anything but traditional.
Secularists have placed a banner on the second floor of the Statehouse to celebrate the birth of Rhode Island founder Roger Williams. He was born December 21st, 1603. The banner was erected by a group called the “Humanists of Rhode Island.”
According to its website, the banner is intended to be a counterpoint to the various religious displays now scattered throughout the Statehouse and to serve as a reminder that American government is secular by nature and design.
