The banner was put up in political response, to support separation of church and state, after a Nativity scene was set up by the Florida Prayer Network a week earlier. Note banner reads, "Happy Winter Solstice - At this season of the Winter Solstice, we celebrate the Birth of the Unconquered Sun - the TRUE reason for the season. As Americans, let us also honor the birth of our Bill of Rights, which reminds us there can be no freedom OF religion, without having freedom FROM religion in government."
