A complaint about a Vassar, Michigan Christmas display

You have to love those “anonymous” complaints.

They had on the news that someone wrote an anonymous complaint about a Nativity display near the city offices of Vassar, Michigan. It’s a First Amendment violation of separation of church and state, they alleged, suggesting that the city would soon hear from the American Civil Liberties Union.

The city has rightfully pointed out that the First Amendment has no such stipulation (it actually comes from a letter Thomas Jefferson wrote to a church talking about “walls” of separation) and that there are no plans to take the display down.

I’ve never grasped why people get so offended by Nativity displays. It’s called CHRISTmas, a holiday where we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Presuming that Muslim countries have a holiday celebrating the birth of their prophet Muhammad, it would be ridiculous to protest and ask why there’s no display of Jesus’ birth there or of other religions.

Granted, Jesus probably was born in the spring…
