Controversy is brewing -- again -- over holiday displays at the Loudoun County Courthouse in Leesburg, Va., after an elected leader used the word "terrorists" to describe a group that's fighting a Christmas tradition.
Soon, the old Loudoun County courthouse lawn will be home to a Christmas tree, a nativity scene, a menorah and Santa Claus.
"And all of those displays are going to be equal," said Ken Reid, of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors. “There’s not going to be one that’s dominant over the others.”
Several local atheists have noted that is a bit over the top, as Loudoun County was hit hard by the Sept 11,2001 attack on the Pentagon. - James.
"I think of it often and I imagine the scene clearly. Even if they come to kill me, I will tell them what they are trying to do is wrong, that [girls'] education is our basic right."—Malala Yousafzai, age fifteen, before she was shot by the Taliban for demanding the right to an education.
What a tool. I drive through Leesburg every weekday to get home from work. The fuss the religionuts raised over last year's skeletal Santa was ridiculous. When will they realize that by doing so, they are only strengthening our message? Put baby Jesus back on private property where he belongs.
