Actually, people, on a daily basis display symbols of their religion. Christians wear crosses, Muslims and Jews wear attire prescribed by their religion, Wicans wear pentagrams. I have occasion on a weekly basis or more often to go into government buildings and have observed all this. Should that be banned? If you say no, then what if a bunch of Christians dressed up like the 12 apostles and walked around a government building or sat out in front of one? If we're going to ban displays of religion in our government buildings (which I do not advocate) let's do it for everyone and everything. I could claim that having served in support of this country in Desert Storm that seeing Muslims in burkas is offensive to me.
