      If the banner space is available to businesses and organizations and individuals who apply in a publicly available process, then I have no problem with it.  It’s public speech, and if the KoC want to talk about their faith there I have no more issue with that than if the Freedom From Religion Foundation folks wanted to put up their own banner.

      Interestingly if the FFRF people did put up a banner many of the people defending the KoC would be up in arms.

      But the first amendment is about the government not regulating religion, not about keeping it out of public spaces.  As long as all religions (or lack thereof) have access via publicly available processes then government ain’t regulating, just allowing.
