The girl is on my page

A group in Wisconsin is objecting to the lowering of flags to honor the pope.

Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle ordered flags lowered to half-staff at public buildings this week in honor of Pope John Paul. President Bush has done the same.

That doesn’t sit well with the Freedom From Religion Foundation in Madison. Foundation co-president Annie Gaylor says the order appears to endorse Roman Catholicism over other religious viewpoints.

Gaylor says she respects the private mourning of Catholics --but says grieving endorsed by the state is wrong.
