So I'm up at the courthouse a second ago and noticed the above religious display. I casually mention to the employees of an unnamed county office that said nativity scene might "promote" a particular religion and, therefore, run afoul of the First Amendment. I was met with "Don't be a rabble rouser," "Why are you offended by the little Baby Jesus," "I think we ought to make Christianity the National Religion," and, finally (about 10 minutes later), "All those Muslims want to strap bombs to their chests and blow us up." There went my Christmas Spirit. (But one court employee did point out, in a remotely related subject, that you can buy a manager* at Tractor Supply." I'll be.) __________ *Edit: Ok. Ok. I meant "manger"
