With the joy and cheer of the Christmas season, unfortunately always comes a few looney liberals who worry that Christmas is offensive to those who aren’t Christian.
And as Christmas is quickly approaching this year, the spirit of the season is under attack in one Indiana town – but the residents aren’t having it.
The American Civil Liberties Union, a group that works to “defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States,” is devaluing the true meaning of Christmas, according to Fox 59.
The group sued the town on behalf of resident Joseph Tompkins, who claimed he was owed damages for being, “forced to come into direct and unwelcome contact with the cross display.”
The suit argues that the town’s display of the cross is a violation of separation of church and state. Should the suit end in success for Tompkins, the cross will be forced to be removed.
But there’s one big problem for him: Dedicated Christmas elves residing in the city.
Hundreds of people in the small town of Knightstown began erecting crosses anywhere they legally could. They’ve gone up in front yards, store windows, and cars.
One particular resident went above and beyond to preserve the holiday spirit. Patricia Hutson made over 200 wooden crosses and handed them out for free prior to a vigil held in support of the cross.
“I hope they make people realize that we should speak up for what we believe in and stand up for it and not be pushed around,” Hutson said.
The hope of the community is that the strong support for the cross display will persuade Tomkins to drop the suit and allow the residents to enjoy the holiday season free of drama and political correctness.
