(CHRISTIAN DAILY) A group campaigning for the removal of Christianity from American schools and the public square has placed an atheist nativity scene outside an Illinois courthouse.
Instead of the traditional figurines of Mary and Jesus watching over baby Jesus, the Freedom From Religion Foundation nativity shows cutouts of American’s founding fathers Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington gazing down upon the Bill of Rights lying in a straw-filled manger.
The display was installed on the front lawn of the Grundy County Courthouse, near Chicago, and will stay until the end of December.
Beside the scene is a sign wishing visitors to the courthouse a happy winter solstice.
