For the past 3 years I’ve displayed a Solstice Banner in downtown Eugene (with the help of the Freedom From Religion Foundation). This year I am not. The banner was a direct response to an annual Jesus banner display. Last year that banner was not displayed. My opinion, and that of FFRF, is that the public square is not the appropriate place for religious displays but, if someone is going to display one, then it is apropos to display a secular one. This is in order to recognize the nonreligious and to remind the religious that not everyone is religious. If a Jesus banner shows up in the future I will respond the following year.
I would again like to thank everyone that donated to this cause.
I hope everyone had a sunny solstice.
