The War on Christmas, Frosty style

It's hard to believe anyone would think a nativity scene belongs on a public school campus, but apparently a Florida town is up in arms after the local school decided not to put up a nativity scene this year. They're still acknowledging Christmas-- in a secular way, with Santa Claus and Frosty-- but evidently that's not enough.

A (thankfully) former board member said with a straight face, "There are people in the community that are threatening to sue the school board (over separation of church and state issues), and it costs a tremendous amount of money to defend something you know you will lose...It’s not that we’re against it; it’s just that the federal law prohibits it." She also called it a "tragic thing" and added, "I know it’s hard to see this happen, because it feels like we’re losing a freedom, but this is the state of affairs in this nation."

What people like this seem unable to understand is that it's a very good state of affairs. Why on earth would anyone think a nativity scene belonged on display at a public school?

  1. In response to this article, you claim that the school is still "acknowledging" CHRISTmas in a secular way. The last time I looked, there is ONLY ONE REASON that Christmas exists in the first place, and that is to celebrate the birth of the savior. The only secular way to celebrate then, would be to ignore it all together. Santa is a blasphemy..switch around the letters and you get Satan.
