Nativity Scene on Display at Florida Capitol

posted on December 4, 2013

The Associated Press reports on the responses to a Nativity scene placed in front of the Florida state Capitol. The Capitol rotunda is open to all groups, provided they meet size and other restrictions. In response, the Freedom from Religion Foundation is hanging up a banner depicting the Statue of Liberty and the Founding Fathers adorning a crib with the Bill of Rights. Co-president Annie Laurie Gaylor said, “We don’t think there should be religion or irreligion in any state Capitol, but if they’re going to start allowing religion and call it a public forum then certainly the non-religious point of view should be there, too.”
