Thousands Rally for Nativity Scene in Texas Town

Thousands Rally for Nativity Scene in Texas Town

December 21, 2011

Thousands of residents of Athens, Texas, gathered at the courthouse to protest an effort to remove a Nativity scene from the town square, OneNewsNow.com reports. After the Freedom From Religion Foundation asked that the Nativity scene be removed and replaced by a "winter solstice" banner, about 5,000 people attended Saturday's rally, which one pastor said was prompted by "the beginning of persecution of Christianity in our nation." A county judge says no federal laws are being broken and that the Nativity scene will remain.
