Yesterday, I posted about the Nativity scene in front of the Bulloch County Courthouse in Statesboro, Georgia. The Freedom From Religion Foundation had successfully put up a non-religious banner next to it a few days ago:

It didn’t take long for that banner to be torn down:

“It seems there is no peace, good will to all in Bulloch County,” said FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor. “This is not just a heckler’s veto, it’s an attack on free speech in a public forum that is supposed to be open to all. This vandalism says the courthouse belongs only to Christians — everyone else is an outsider.”

There’s no sign of who did this, but the banner is back up now thanks to a local FFRF member.
