|War on Christmas Begins!|
|Tuesday, 07 September 2010 15:25|
In Loudoun County Virginia a battle is already waging over the display of a nativity scene during the Christmas season at the County Courthouse. Last year a resolution was passed by the Loudoun Country Supervisors that allowed religious displays. But now the courthouse grounds committee has decided only to allow secular displays.
Virginia State Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has become involved and rendered an opinion that religious displays should be permitted as long as other faiths and beliefs are allowed representation. Under the U.S. and Virginia constitutions, religious and nonreligious holiday displays are legally allowed on government property.
The Loudoun County Supervisors need to hear from you today. Urge them not to restrict constitutionally protected religious expression. Below is a list of members of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors. Please contact as many as you can.
