Secular fundamentalists show their class

Wisconsin State Journal:

A Madison secular organization is protesting Gov. Jim Doyle's order to fly flags at half-staff at public buildings all week to remember Pope John Paul II.

The gesture "appears like an endorsement of Roman Catholicism over other religious viewpoints," said Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

It doesn't matter that the pope was the leader of 1/6 of the world's population, and of a good number of the citizens of his state, I guess. Typical of fundamentalists to be so provincial in outlook.
