Arkansas State Capitol: 'Religious center' says Facebook page



It was just called to my attention that the Arkansas State Capitol Facebook page is topped by a description that it is a "landmark" and a "religious center." Religious center?

The page, given links and announcements, appears to be related to Secretary of State Mark Martin's office, which provides a link to the Facebook page from his own website. I've sent a query about the description. Fitting for a place soon to add a Ten Commandments monument, if not a Gay Pride Festivus pole.

UPDATE: Chris Powell, Mark Martin's press spokesman, was up bright and early this morning and sent this response to me at 7:29 a.m. about the description on the page

Our office maintains that page and that's a good question. It shouldn't have been labeled that way. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. The page has been edited.
