On the other hand, where the government's act of recognition or accommodation is passive and symbolic, any intangible benefit to religion is unlikely to present a realistic risk of establishment.

None, however, were as successful or as notorious as Murray v. In late 1963, she unsuccessfully sued the city of Baltimore to eliminate the city's tax exemptions for churches.
"I am an Atheist," she wrote in the "Why I Am an Atheist" pamphlet. She also challenged the school board of Baltimore to remove "Under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance and filed suit over Maryland's "moment of silence" law, also without success.
I’ll be at Bar Marco in Pittsburgh, PA on April 8 (Saturday) from 7-10pm (2216 Penn Avenue), chatting with anyone who wants to come have a drink with me, and selling and signing my books, of which I’ll have an ample supply.
