War on Christmas: ACLU Demands Small Town Remove Nativity Display

"The constitution doesn’t allow such a scene in isolation"

The "War on Christmas" continues, this time from the Scrooges over at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), who wished a small, Louisiana town a happy "bah-humbug" by demanding they remove their public Nativity display, because trigger warnings.

"At the Grant Parish Courthouse sits a traditional nativity scene with the Virgin Mary and the child Christ," reports Breitbart. The nativity scene was a tradition in the area until the ACLU voiced opposition to the display."

The ACLU of New Orleans then sent a letter to the Grant Parish Police Jury saying "the constitution doesn’t allow such a scene in isolation," and that they must also include a secular Christmas display alongside.

One anonymous resident thought the letter so ridiculous they then posted their own "Secular Display" to mock the demand:

In an interview with KALB News Grant Parish District Attorney Jay Lemoine balked at the letter, calling it just another excuse for people to be offended by the obviously non-offensive. 

"It seems these days it is typical for everyone to rush to want to be offended," he said. "The offense would be if the religious symbols were taken out of Christmas."

​Saying the secular display is the Christmas Tree that resides in the court house, Lemoine declared political correctness will not rule the day here. 

"We are going to maintain this display through Christmas and I’m sure next year we will put up another display," he said.
