Trouble Brewing in North Carolina

Talk about not holding the lighting ceremony at the Word’s Largest Living Christmas Tree in Cape Fear, North Carolina this year spurred another potentially controversial topic during the council’s agenda meeting Monday, October 4th – religious symbols on public property.
