OLYMPIA — The state General Administration Department has approved permits for two holiday displays this year in the state Capitol in Olympia.

One is a Nativity scene sponsored by an Olympia-area real estate agent, Ron Wesselius, who sued last year over the issue and reached a settlement allowing the display.

The other is a placard from the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Coalition that notes the winter solstice and says religion is a superstition that enslaves minds.

The Olympian reports the displays will likely be on the third floor of the Capitol.
