Gov’t Building Nativities: Don’t These People Have A Church?

December 19, 2008

You know, there has been a lot of attention about the nativity scene/atheist signs on the lawns of government buildings lately. It starts with a religious group or person petitioning to put up a nativity, then the ffrf puts up an atheist sign in rebuttal.  But, what I don’t get is this: don’t these people have churches? Can’t they put up their nativity there? Of course, it would be even better if they put them in their own lawn, but that would be far too logical.

I drove around town today and looked for nativity scenes (or any religious display) on church grounds. Out of 14 churches, only 2 of them have displays. So, why would people demand that government buildings have nativity scenes if churches aren’t even putting them up?
