Locals Puts Up Their Own Nativity Scene After Town Says No To Scenes On Public Property

Published

What would the Christmas season be without a little controversy concerning the Reason for the Season, Jesus Christ. It seems that every year, there is a group of atheists or liberals in some small town somewhere who decide to throw a fit about a Nativity scene being put on display on public property.

This comes from a misunderstanding of the concept of the separation of church and state, which leftists tend to think means that God and government should never be involved with each other. This, of course, is a wrongheaded interpretation.

The separation of church and state has to do with keeping the government out of the church, not God out of the government.

Anyway, the city of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware decided to break its previous tradition and banned a religious organization from placing Nativity scene on public property. However, townsfolk decided they would just go ahead and put up their own.

Last year, the city ordered the local Knights of Columbus to take down a Nativity scene that had been set up close to the city’s boardwalk. The city received a complaint from the Anti-Defamation League that stated the display “wasn’t inclusive of other religions.”

In November, the city held firm on its position concerning the display, with Mayor Paul Kuhns commenting that “the city policy is not to have religious displays on public property or city property.”

Here’s more from TheBlaze:

One of those displays, the story notes, travels around the city in the back of Mike Pichola’s pickup truck. Pichola told the outlet that he normally puts the Nativity scene up in his front yard, but brought it to Rehoboth Beach as a response to the city’s situation.

“It’s just a shame,” he told the newspaper. “We’re devout Christians, and this is the time of the year to do it.”

While some in the area have responded with prayers in protest of the policy, the Delaware Cape Gazette detailed Tuesday how locals have responded to the matter by putting up their own Nativity displays. The story says there are at least 10 businesses and residents who have done so. And keep in mind: This is all going on in a city with a population of just over 1,500, according to Census Bureau data.

The city policy has also inspired a constitutional challenge with the First Liberty Institute calling it a violation of the First Amendment.

‘Implemencation?’ What?

It’s a day ending in “y,” so 2020 Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden said something silly. It’s just par for the course, at this point – like a tweet from President Trump. It’s just going to happen. The fact that the former vice president, who has yet to be endorsed by Barack Obama, still has trouble stringing along basic sentences, is troubling. Unless you’re a Democrat. In that case, everything is fine.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, told The Post, saying the virtual broadcasts were not helping. “We need action immediately, and Biden can’t do anything real right now.” Here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/TheFirstonTV/status/1243943188202741760 https://twitter.com/5thYear/status/1244003547605348352 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1243996304444923904 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1243989599128563713 https://twitter.com/HardFactorMark/status/1244018816780324865 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1243981209807532032 https://twitter.com/darrenrovell/status/1244018174347153412 https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/1244010121568456706 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1243986977340325893 https://twitter.com/HKWORLDCITY/status/1243865641448169474?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1243865641448169474&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-senior-who-official-avoids-taiwan-question-talks-about-china-abruptly-ends-interview%3F%253Futm_source%3Dtwitter%26utm_medium%3Dsocial%26utm_campaign%3Ddwtwitter https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1244006484754583552 https://twitter.com/BroBible/status/1244012697135370240 https://twitter.com/BNODesk/status/1243965506983428096

China Likely Lying About COVID-19 Deaths, Photos Shows Thousands of Urns [Report]

How will they spin this one?

It was reported on Friday that the United States overtook China and Italy with the most confirmed cases of coronavirus. But why would anyone (except for the left-wing mainstream media) believe the Chinese are reporting their numbers accurately? Don’t fall for it, y’all. From Bloomberg: The long lines and stacks of ash urns greeting family members of the dead at funeral homes in Wuhan are spurring questions about the true scale of coronavirus casualties at the epicenter of the outbreak, renewing pressure on a Chinese government struggling to control its containment narrative. The families of those who succumbed to the virus in the central Chinese city, where the disease first emerged in December, were allowed to pick up their cremated ashes at eight local funeral homes starting this week. As they did, photos circulated on Chinese social media of thousands of urns being ferried in. CONTINUED: Outside one funeral home, trucks shipped in about 2,500 urns on both Wednesday and Thursday, according to Chinese media outlet Caixin. Another picture published by Caixin showed 3,500 urns stacked on the ground inside. It’s unclear how many of the urns had been filled.
