The article goes on to talk about how not everyone is Christian therefore displays should not be allowed in public. But not everyone is atheist, or believes in what the ACLU preaches, yet they feel their views and beliefs should take priority over anyone else's. This group threatens others if they do not do as they want, but I have yet to hear of a nativity scene threatening anyone.
Well, a couple of things: "separation of Church and State" isn't even in the Constitution. There's nothing in the first amendment about it.
Second of all, the ACLU gets away with this because of money. They have big-time financial backers with very specific agendas and threaten these cities with costly court battles. In these times of cash-strapped budgets, high taxes and deficits cities are hard pressed to do the right thing because doing the right thing just costs too much.
Common sense, what's right and what's fair hardly has much to do with it.
