I’d say that Santa Monica “leadership”....mayor, city council....are a bunch of pantywaists. Time to kick them out.
Problem is, out here we refer to it as the “People’s Republic of Santa Monica”. It would take legal action in court to get this resolved. There’s no excuse for the atheists trying to destroy Christian’s ability to celebrate a Christian Holiday in the public square. They’ve got eleven other months of the year to celebrate to their heart’s content.
