The War on Christmas Has Already Begun, Declares Fox News Host

I posted earlier about a Nativity Scene battle taking place in Belen, New Mexico. Mayor Jerah Cordova refuses to take down the government-sponsored Christian display because, he says, it’s part of the town’s history and isn’t at all a promotion of religion.

FFRF Fires Another Lawsuit Against Indiana County That Wants to Display a Nativity Scene on Courthouse Grounds

Back in December, I wrote about a Nativity Scene in Brookville, Indiana that had 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.
