If it was not the national motto, upheld by the Supreme Court as acceptable and not a violation of the First Amendment, then I would agree with you that it is hypocritical, and that it should not be placed in a government building. Until that point, I think it's fine, and the atheist organization is wasting its time and money. But hey, if they want to make a statement, more power to them. It's a free country.

Achilles, your argument about how I feel about atheists fails because you generalize inappropriately and work from several incorrect premises. I'm sorry we've gotten to the point where we dislike each other so much that you take anything I say as an insult to you personally and atheists in general. I do not dislike most atheists, and I care a great deal about the ones I consider my friends.

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
