There is no harm in viewing an object of someone else's religious beliefs. There is harm when the government displays a religious belief. The person has a right to their religious opinion but the government has no right or authority and is expressly prohibited by the US Constitution from promoting any religious belief.

The harm, when government promotes any religious belief, is the violation of Constitutionally protected Religious Freedom of the People in the United States.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.
