Dec 2, 2012 Comments Off on School Replaces Baby Jesus With Frosty The Snowman After Pressure From Obama Admin Dinah Tellya
Excerpted from Fox News: Frosty the Snowman is there — and so is Santa Claus.
But the Baby Jesus is stuffed inside a closet at Cottondale Elementary School — leaving many residents of this small town in the Florida panhandle outraged.
The Nativity scene had been a part of the school’s holiday lawn decorations for years. But this year the yuletide display is strictly secular.
Principal Brenda Jones told television station WJHG the decision to keep Baby Jesus in the closet came after an official with the Dept. of Education dropped by to discuss the separation of church and state.
“The Dept. of Education came in and talked to us about the legalities of religion in the school systems and the separation of the two,” Jones told the television station.
