The Wisconsin group that has decided to take its campaign against Nativity scenes around the country is now demanding their own form of disclaimer to be posted by Nativity scenes on city or county property:
You may have heard this argument before, that a nativity scene or any display of religious symbol on public ground is a violation of church and state. In Warren, a man wants to challenge the argument a step further by displaying a 'certain' sign right next to the nativity scene.Good for Mayor Fouts. Please continue to ignore the atheist zealots and let them sue if they wish. Christmas is over in five days.
Douglas Marshall is a member of the Freedom from Religion Foundation. His group claims Warren Mayor Jim Fouts is discriminating and engaging in unlawful censorship.
At the base of their argument is the placement of a nativity scene at Warren's City Hall. Marshall says if they're going to display it then they must also allow for displays that represent other viewpoints on religion.
The group wants to place a sign that reads:
"At this season of the Winter Solstice, let reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds." The other side reads: "STATE/CHURCH: Keep Them Separate."
Until the now the group claims Fouts has ignored their request. If he continues to do so they promise legal action
