Episode-18- Nativity. Ellwood City, Pennsylvania. How to defend a threatened Nativity

I hadn’t talked to my dad in over a week and he told me about what he did last Friday December 2, 2011. My hometown in Pennsylvania has been putting up a nativity scene in front of the city building since before anyone can remember. It seems some atheist group in Wisconsin http://ffrf.org/about/ found out about it finally and they threatened to sue my hometown. They said they were sending 2 buses of people to my hometown to demand that their banner denouncing gods be displayed next to the nativity scene.  http://ffrf.org/news/releases/ffrf-sends-solstice-cheer-to-ellwood-city/
