ACLU launches Christmas Attack On Indiana Town because
One Liberal Snowflake Upset
The American Civil Liberties Union (the ACLU) has filed a lawsuit to attempt to force a small town from
having a Christmas Tree with a cross on top.
Traditional Christmas displays that include community symbols are allowed under the Supreme Court ruling from years ago. And most towns and cities have all sorts of religious symbols as part of a secular display to celebrate "Christmas" which is factually the birth of Jesus Christ, so the lawsuit is pure harrassment, said Eugene Delgaudio, President of Public Advocate.
CBS News report
"KNIGHTSTOWN, Ind. - Crosses are going up all over Knightstown.
A group of residents in the town of 2,100 people are standing up for the town's Christmas display, despite a recent lawsuit.
The ACLU sued the town on behalf of resident Joseph Tompkins, claiming the cross on top of the town's Christmas tree is a violation of Tompkins' First Amendment rights guaranteeing separation of church and state.
The suit requests the cross be removed and the town pay Tompkins damages for being "forced to come into direct and unwelcome contact with the cross display" every day.
"Just because one person's offended, doesn't mean they have to take away one particular thing," said Knightstown resident Cynthia Sturgill."
.................To declare their support for the tree topper, hundreds of people in Knightstown have put crosses up in their yards, stores, windows and even cars.
