Christmas is under attack every year by the radical Left.
They do everything they can to take Christ out of Christmas.
But now the war on Christmas has reached new heights with this attack on the Ten Commandments and a town’s nativity scene.
In Dover, Ohio, city officials say they were forced to remove a statue of the Ten Commandments and a nativity scene from the city property after receiving threats from the atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF).
FFRF has said the removal of the religious scene was in “defense of the First Amendment.”
Fox 8 Cleveland News writes:
DOVER, Ohio — Season’s greetings in Dover will look different this year after the mayor says the city was threatened with a lawsuit if they refused to move a statue of the Ten Commandments and a nativity display off city property.
“We have freedom of religion and they’re saying that we’re endorsing one religion,” said Dover Mayor Richard Homrighausen.
In a January letter, a Wisconsin based group — the Freedom from Religion Foundation– wrote the Dover mayor, stating an area resident reported about the displays including a large “Latin”cross.
The foundation stated the displays were a conflict, citing the separation between church and state. The mayor says the displays nearby city hall were moved to a nearby church property as a result this holiday season.
“Twenty-seven years been mayor, nothing like this has ever happened,” said the mayor. “Never imagined it would happen.”
The Freedom From Religion Foundation thinks they are “defending” the First Amendment.
But in reality they are attacking the very purpose of it, that anyone can exercise Freedom of religion.
No one can take that away as a constitutionally given right.
Unfortunately, this is not FFRF’s first rodeo with an attack on Christmas.
As we reported, they recently set up a “secular nativity scene” that depicts Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington watching the Bill of Rights in a manger.
In doing so they flat-out disrespect the purpose of Christmas in the birth of Jesus.
But they also show their true colors by demanding that religious displays be removed, and simultaneously demanding that they be allowed to set up their own atheistic displays.
This shows the hypocrisy of the radical left.
They want to completely disregard the Constitution unless they can twist it in their favor.
