Two of my former students of my religious education class told this story:

A few years ago their family put up a manger scene in front of their house during Advent. Their neighbors, who teach at our local university, approached them a few days after the Manger went up, and requested that they take it down as they found it offensive.

The family went out and bought another Creche and put it up as well.

Best news I had heard that day.

I would have to ask those people if they were so insecure that they wouldn’t handle a little freedom of speech? Really, do they want to live in a country where no one has belief in God? Maybe they should move to another country rather than take our God out of our lives.

The Constitution GUARANTEES you will be offended if everyone gets freedom of speech & religion!

It is way past time to stop this in it’s tracks. PUSH BACK ON THESE FOOLS.

I loved reading your post. That’s what the reaction to these God-hating fascists should have been all along.

Santa Monica wasn’t “forced” to cancel Christmas. They gave in, plain and simple.

did this happen in Wisconsin?

also, in regards to the original story, you would think in a town named after st. Monica they would be more than happy to put up a creche
