There is a pretty simple test to determine it's validity. Would statues of Satan, L. Ron Hubbard, Muhammed, Buddha, etc. be allowed to be erected in the same spot? If 'yes,' then it can stay. If 'no,' then it has to go.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, which argued the statue violated the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution's prohibition on Congress making any law regarding an establishment of religion - - - Gosh, the Pope's job sure would be easy if this was all it took to establish a religion :)
