One group in Ellwood City has found a creative way to circumvent a potential lawsuit by displaying a nativity scene in front of the municipal building.

Instead, they’re going to put it on a truck.

The Beaver County Times reports that the Moose lodge is going to park a trailer carrying a nativity scene in front of the building.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, based out of Wisconsin, threatened to sue the borough if it did not remove the creche.

Many locals were disappointed by the decision and vocalized opposition to the change.

The new, nativity on wheels is expected to make its way to the front of the borough around 5 p.m. Thursday, according to the newspaper.RELATED LINKS
