The Honorable Lincoln D. Chafee
Office of the Governor

Providence, RI 02903
Dear Governor Chafee,
The Humanists of Rhode Island are proud to support your recent actions regarding the artificial controversy fomented on talk radio and Fox News regarding the Holiday Tree at the Rhode Island State House.
Rhode Island has a long and proud tradition of religious freedom, secularity and freethought. Roger Williams founded this state to honor the conscience and traditions of all faiths and no faiths, and your actions reflect these values.
Thank you for taking this stand and for navigating the difficult terrain of those who seek to politicize the holidays for personal fortune and fame.
