Hmmm...wonder if the FFRF would complain about what the Satanic Temple wanted to put up if it had been approved? It would have also been a "religious" display...just the other side of religion as the nativity shows it.

Ridiculous! It's not hurting a single person being there...if you don't like it move along! Like someone said...better not use money either, you're using something that says God on it! *eye roll* This country was founded on Christian beliefs...and to be a country were everyone can believe how they wish without others trying to change it. Yeah, I get it, separation of church and state etc etc...but it's not like they replace the nativity after Christmas with a huge cross. People are sworn in on bibles all the time. I also will always say Merry Christmas not happy holidays....if someone says "Oh I'm not a christian/I don't believe in God" I'm just like *smile* Okay...have a great day! I don't correct to happy holidays. And well....this nativity has been there 50 years without anyone saying boo about it. How are they to alter it? Make it former presidents or something?

I'm with everyone in hoping that option 2 happens. And was Bella actually checked out by a professional to see if he does problems with other people or children? Or was it just Mr. Lay saying it so he wouldn't be adopted out?

@Vicki Gentry Reiter @Christine Osborn @Namvet 6970 Nothing truly legit business wise. Like the guy that built the huge bunny for no apparent reason...
@sharkie1971 So true but sadly it won't ever happen.
I always think of some lyrics from the song Popular from Wicked when I think of anyone in a position of political power. "Celebrated heads of states or especially great communicators. Did they have brains or knowledge? Don't make me laugh! They were popular! Please...it's all about popular. It's not aptitude, it's the way you're viewed. So it's very shrewd indeed to be very very popular. "
@Namvet 6970 People getting money when they don't deserve or need it along with "businesses" getting money they aren't supposed to. Oh and can't forget someone writing extra paychecks to themselves. :/
@RBAE76 I think it was found out that he did it to himself then made up a description of the "two guys" that did it.

@timat39m @Christine Osborn Agreed!! I hope he has to pay/give back every cent and then some for money lost!! David has fixed my wedding band a couple times and did wonderful on it.
I hope they find the guy. The gentleman, even though I haven't met him personally, is very nice from everything my husband has told me.
Lots of prayers for you Mike.

@couldawouldashoulda My grandfather had a pet raccoon..this was down in Ages Kentucky, he found it abandoned when it was itty bitty. From the stories I was told it would walk on a leash like a dog and everything. But this was forever ago (since he was technically my great grandpa but since my grandparents adopted me really young...yeah haha). Now I just can't see anyone having any of the above as a pet. And since they were hiding they had these animals from authorities you know that skunks couldn't have been de-scented. o.O

@SteveBousum we don't go to church every Sunday either, though the one we do go to has some wonderful people. I was raised in a home with a mom that was a Southern Pentecostal woman (no snake handling at the Pentecostal church that used to be in Lawrenceburg thankfully lol). But even if I didn't care for any religion at all I wouldn't complain about a nativity. It's been a symbol of Christmas in general for a very long time

@TomDolan It would be a nightmare getting people out safely on the nights with big music acts at the fairgrounds though. Someone commented in the Facebook group about how bad it was getting out of the fairground after the Alabama show. And Marie brought up what happens when it's decided Fall Fest should be paying to get in like the 4H Fair did. Even with the entry fee getting you on rides for free at the 4H fair it wasn't worth it to us and we stopped going. We don't do rides and our 5 year old only has a few he likes.

@papawgrunt I think they're referring to what some people would call someone with something like Downs Syndrome or something similar. My best guess at what they're talking about reading the entire article.

o.O Really did the "Freedom from Religion Foundation" ever consider it's also a tradition with how long it's been put up in front of the courthouse?? I don't live in Brookville but jeez. Some people are just ridiculous....they want their right to not like or want a religion pushed on them respected but don't seem to want it to go both ways. I know it's a courthouse and it's a government building but good Lord....leave it be it's not physically hurting a single person. If they've been doing it for years and it just started being wined about a couple years ago. *shakes head* People aren't supposed to say Merry Christmas anymore so they don't offend someone that isn't a Christian even though that's been what most have said for a very very long time...now people are complaining about nativity scenes...what's next a church can't look like a church because it's offensive to people that aren't Christians?? I have no issue with people that don't want to be part of a religion and such but it's starting to get a little crazy on what people can or can't say, or do, or what can or can't be outside a building government or not. We stopped saying the Pledge of Allegiance in high school cause heaven forbid it has "In God We Trust" in it...and I've read article where schools have rewritten traditional Christmas songs to cut out any mention of God or Heaven (cause they couldn't have picked one of the hundred of Christmas songs that DON'T mention God or Heaven to sing in their concert)....it's just getting ridiculous.
