Last week, I mention that there was a Nativity Scene in Brookville, Indiana that has been up for over 50 years, despite warning letters (over the course of several years) from the Freedom From Religion Foundation to take it down.
Here are the only details that matter: The display is owned by the Town of Brookville and sits on the grounds of the Franklin County Courthouse.
Now Who’s Waging War on Christmas? To the Dismay of Other Christians, Pastor Claims that Santa = Satan
Pastor Edward Carothers seems like a barrel of laughs. He’s the man behind a church sign outside the Born Again Independent Baptist Church in Harlem, Georgia, that’s been raising eyebrows. It reads:

Arizona School Board Decides Against Redacting Honors Biology Textbook Page Mentioning Birth Control
Last month, the board members of the Gilbert Public Schools in Arizona voted 3-2 in favor of removing a page from an honors biology textbook because it contained information about birth control and abortion.
Mind you, it also said “Complete abstinence (avoiding intercourse) is the only totally effective method of birth control,” but the textbook upset conservatives because it suggested there were non-abstinence options when it came to birth control.
After the district became the subject of mockery — Rachel Maddow‘s team even bought the domain ArizonaHonorsBiology.com so that everyone could read the controversial page from the textbook — Superintendent Christina Kishimoto urged the board to reconsider their decision.
