'War on Easter' in Wisconsin Between Christians, Atheists

The "War on Easter" frenzy has officially begun in Madison, Wis. where the atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation and the Christian group Concerned Women for America are competing with opposing messages at the State Capitol building.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation has set up a sign that reads "Nobody died for our sins, Jesus Christ is a myth."

Concerned Women for America set up a display that includes a Christian cross and pro-life literature, noted Fox News.

Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, said in a press release:

It's unfortunate to see a sectarian symbol [a cross] that is increasingly used as a symbol of political intimidation in our state capitol.

It's also unfortunate to see women serving as a front for a patriarchal religion based on women's subservience and second-class status. This is the same group that helped defeat the Equal Rights Amendment citing its allegiance to biblical principles, instead of civil liberties under our secular government.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation also claims that someone tried to mangle their sign, but they got it back and put it back up.
