Atheist Judge Fires Shot In War On Christmas
The War on Christmas rages on.
It’s much like the War On Terrorism.
It’s fought in the shadows.
The enemy blends in with innocent people.
It’s not big bombs being dropped, but small hits that destroy the ability of Christians to practice their faith.
Here’s the latest shot fired in the War on Christmas:
A federal judge ruled against an Arkansas Courthouse Thursday in a suit over a nativity scene on public property.
U.S. District Judge Timothy L. Brooks said Baxter County must either remove the nativity or “create a public forum on the courthouse grounds for a seasonal display open to persons of all faiths as well as of no faith at all, without discrimination on the basis of viewpoint.”
The lawsuit began when the American Humanist Association filed suit in December of 2014. A private resident had put the nativity on the public property, but locals in 2013 had been denied when they asked to put a “Happy Solstice” sign near the nativity, so the lawsuit called that a double standard.
Does the Constitution prohibit the free exercise of religion?
Or does it demand a separation of Church and State?
Finally consider this:
Do the government employees who work at this courthouse get Christmas Day off with pay?
