War On Christmas… Wisconsin Group Sues Athens, Texas Over Nativity Scene

A Wisconsin-based non-profit group called for Athens, Texas to remove its Nativity scene. It offends them… up in Wisconsin.

The war continues on Christmas.
WFAA reported:

The signs of Christmas are everywhere in downtown Athens.

Lights, trees, and Santa and his reindeer line the streets. But it’s the nativity scene on the lawn at the county courthouse that has caused concern.

“I just don’t understand it, to be honest with you,” said Henderson County Judge Richard Sanders. “I’m just confused about it.”

Sanders says residents haven’t complained. The issues were brought up by the Freedom From Religion foundation, a Wisconsin non-profit group who sent a letter to the county this week, calling the display unconstitutional and demanding it come down.

“I’m an old country boy, you come to my house looking for a fight, you’re going to get one,” said County Commissioner Joe Hall. “That’s from the bottom of my heart.”

There’s no confusing how Hall feels. He says the county isn’t budging.

“We’ll remove it when hell freezes over,” Hall said. “It’s not going to happen.”
