A federal judge in Arizona ruled Monday that the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) does not have the legal standing necessary to stop Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer from declaring days of prayer for the state....FFRF, which is based in Wisconsin, filed its lawsuit last year. In dismissing it, Judge Roslyn Silver wrote that “encouraging” prayer isn’t injurious to anyone.

CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING AT WISCONSIN STATE CAPITOL
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at your State Capitol as folks busily decorate the grounds in anticipation of all of the visitors that will be coming over the next several weeks! Remember Bing Crosby? -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcZAwoip5aY
The Capitol Christmas Tree will be lit during two performances of the Kiwanis Club Christmas Pageant at 4:15 and 5:15 p.m. this Sunday, December 4th. http://www.doa.state.wi.us/events_detail.asp?eventid=1147&locid=4
Video about this year's tree that comes to us from the Brule River State Forest:
Come early as Tours of the Capitol run from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday.
P.S. How nice it would be if a Church, civic organization, business or family stepped forward and sponsored a Capitol Nativity like they have in other states.
