Well the statues are prettier than Ashcroft, and less likely to shred the 
Constitution. So maybe he was afraid of being upstaged by them.

However, as a friend who's a liberal protestant told me, she's getting 
tired of everyone blaming a religion for an individual's insecurities and 
neuroses.

And, as the article pointed out, people in the previous administration 
objected to the statues, so it can hardly be blamed on religious feeling 
alone.

It's a corollary to that law about not attributing to malice that which 
can be explained by stupidity.
