Atheist Display Will Accompany Nativity At Courthouse

Posted by doctore0 on October 1, 2015


(Brookville, Ind.) – The Freedom From Religion Foundation is now adhering to the idiom “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”

Just last week, a federal judge dismissed the Wisconsin-based atheist organization’s December 2014 lawsuit demanding removal of the Christian Nativity display from the Franklin County Courthouse lawn in Brookville. The privately owned display has appeared on the county government owned property each Christmas season for the past 50 years.

U.S. District Court Judge Tonya Walton Pratt pointed to Franklin County’s new content-neutral application process for private displays at the courthouse as the main factor in dismissing the suit. County commissioners acted to unanimously pass the ordinance following the lawsuit from the FFRF and the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana last November.

Despite the recent loss in court, the foundation is not going away quietly. The atheists have been granted approval to display a Bill of Rights Nativity and a Winter Solstice banner on the courthouse lawn near the Christian Nativity this holiday season.
