Christine - I had seen the situation in Santa Monica. I'm amused by the persecution posturing... From what I understand the Christians have located a private property on which to erect their nativity. It's not the job of a city government to provide free advertising space for groups, whether religious or not. Churches should put nativity sets on church property. No persecution, no bullying - just separation!
If one is going to tell a lie, make it a big lie, tell it loudly and tell it often and eventually people will come to believe it. ~Josef Goebbels
