FFRF’s Bill of Rights display adorns the Minn. Capitol

For the first time, FFRF’s Bill of Rights display is in the Minnesota Capitol — countering a nearby Christian nativity scene.

FFRF Members Tom Picquet and Conni Conner put up the exhibit in the North Hall of the 10,000 Lakes State Capitol. It will be in the building until the end of December.

A sign attached to the tongue-in-cheek display, featuring three Founders and Lady Liberty gazing at a “baby” Bill of Rights in a manger, reads:
At this season of the Winter Solstice
Join us in honoring the Bill of Rights, adopted on December 15, 1791, which reminds us there can be no religious freedom without the freedom to dissent.
Keep religion and government separate!

“We’re proud to be making our presence felt in our neighbor to the north,” says FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor. “Our vibrant Minnesota membership has made certain that we’re represented at the seat of lawmaking in the state.”

FFRF, a national state/church watchdog, thanks its members and volunteers for erecting the display.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is a national nonprofit organization with 40,000 members and chapters across the country, including 900 members in Minnesota and two local chapters in the state. FFRF’s purposes are to protect the constitutional principle of separation between state and church, and to educate the public on matters relating to nontheism.
