BTW the headline originally read, “Texas Governor Orders Atheist Display Removed  . . .” but there’s nothing anti-God there, just pro-America and pro-Constitution.  Honestly, the full-support-for-civil-liberties-lawyers theory is the only one that really fits.

And “Satanists Cite Hobby Lobby for Exemption from Anti-Abortion Laws.”

Good thing they’re pro-life in Texas
