Seasonal Christmas Fights Start Early

Each year, the faithful celebrate Christmas with a slew of lawsuits seeking to put religious symbols in public places. This season started a bit early with a ballot measure in Michigan. In Berkley, Mich., voteres turned down an amendment to the city charter on Tuesday that would have allowed a nativity scene to return to the lawn outside their City Hall. It will only be the first of such measures and lawsuits which comes with seasonal regularity. For a prior column, click here

    We’d be doing a lot better had we kept “religion” out of it,
    thank you.

    With all due respect, that is exactly the genius which was intended originally.

    Interesting… an unintended, genius aspect of democracy is that the state of the government will represent the state of the people. We needn’t impose any particular religion on our government. Whether or not our government is morally stable will reflect the moral stability of us, the people. So how are we doing?

  2. They shouldn’t be allowed to fight about it until after Thanksgiving. One commercial season at a time!!!
