I find it very displeasing that there is a crèche labeled “Keep Christ in Christmas” on Beacon city property between the Visitor’s Center and fire station.
Whatever your feelings or heritage, it should be clear as Americans that we do not permit our civil apparatus to promote a particular religious ideology. “Keep Christ in Christmas,” moreover, is a politicized rallying cry that has an unsavory track record.
The risk of costly legal action alone should spur level-headed politicians to agree that the crèche does not belong on city property.
