Skip to comments.War on Christmas: Atheists Threaten to Sue Ohio Town for Nativity Scene
Posted on 12/19/2016 5:13:01 AM PST by detective
Militant atheists at the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) are threatening to sue St. Bernard, Ohio, over the citys Nativity scene a Christmas display depicting the scene of Jesuss birth in Bethlehem in the Holy Land. If FFRF follows through and files in federal court, that case could result in a historic restoration of religious liberty nationwide.
St. Bernard is a suburb of Cincinnati. For many years, the city has displayed a crèche i.e., a Nativity scene during the Christmas season. It is accompanied by non-biblical seasonal holiday displays as well, making this outdoor crèche similar to the one the Supreme Court upheld in its 1984 case Lynch v. Donnelly.

Jesus predicted the attacks on Him.
All it does is strengthen resolve from those of us who believe in Him. It might even bring in converts.
Paging Mr. Trump
Please put an end to this assault on religious freedom.
These people need to be beaten senseless. It’s the only way they will learn.
Wouldn’t it be unfortunate if a group of people converged on the FFRF building in Madison, Wisconsin and gave them a taste of their own medicine?
I wish they’d get shipped off to a Muslim country and see how it feels to be REALLY persecuted, instead of getting butthurt about depictions of Baby Jesus.
The important thing for the folks in these places to do is get the crèche away from your municipal building and put it in a park instead. A crèche in front of a government building implies government sponsorship, while a crèche in a park or similar public space is protected under the First Amendment.

Tell them that it was put there in the name of “diversity”.
I tend to agree with his rationale on this. A government building is no place for a religious exhibit in this country. It's perfectly acceptable for private organizations to sponsor religious exhibits in public spaces, on the other hand.
I have a friend who’s mayor of a small town. This year, they authorized the placement of a Nativity scene. I think they also have a menorah.
I sent him some information on the communist criminal who started Kwaanza. He’s going to pull that out and give to anyone who yells at him to add Kwaanza stuff.
How could four judges dissent if it was a six to three decision?

Is this another GEORGE SOROS funded organization?
“The important thing for the folks in these places to do is get the crèche away from your municipal building and put it in a park instead.”
That won’t satisfy them.
Where’s ONE person w/ 2-brain-cells-to-rub-together?
- They are Athiests, what do they care about God?
- Presuppose govt DOES back Christianity; what damage is done?
- I read nothing in the Fed. Constitution to prohibit the State from anything...
Leave the crèche up
Let them sue
We can thank Scotus for driving Christianity from the public square.
Our nation will never be out of danger until Scotus is rendered institutionally subservient to the Constitution.

However, the lack of religious symbols in front of a government building during a time of seasonal devotions implies that the government sponsors atheism, one may surmise.
