FFRF places ‘Let Reason Prevail’ banner in Virginia park


A Freedom From Religion Foundation Winter Solstice banner has been placed in a public park in Manassas, Va., on Monday, Dec. 14.

FFRF received a permit from the city for its “Let Reason Prevail” banner to counter a nativity scene in the public park. It was placed next to the crèche by local FFRF member in Nelson Park. It will be displayed through Dec. 31.

FFRF’s 7½-by-3-foot banner states: “At this Season of the Winter Solstice, LET REASON PREVAIL. There are not gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth & superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.”

“It is our hope that one day government spaces will be free from religious — or irreligious — displays,” said FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor. “But until then, we will do our best to counter these unlawful displays and remind passersby of the ‘real reason for the season’ — the Winter Solstice.”
