Last summer, there was a kerfuffle in Milwaukee over their Mexican and Irish festivals.
Mexican Fiesta, an event sponsored by the city, cost $13/person for entrance… unless you attended Mass, in which case it was only $5:
The Freedom From Religion Foundation called them out on it and organizers eventually issued a compromise: they said anyone who came for the 10:30a Mass on Sunday would get a discounted ticket… but atheists wouldn’t have to participate in the Mass. They’d just have to sit around and wait for 90 minutes.
I never said it was a good compromise.
Now, the city’s Festa Italiana is doing the same damn thing.
