County Approves Display of Crucifixion of Santa Claus; Ten Commandments, However, Still Off Limits

I guess this is the kind of cultural shift that President Obama was talking about when he spoke about 'fundamentally transforming America'.

A skeleton, dressed as Santa Claus and nailed to a cross, was torn down by an enraged woman outside of the Loudoun County Courthouse.

The display was legally there, with the consent of the county, officials said.

Mary Zenecki, a county resident, wasn't having it. Piece by piece and bone by bone Zenecki took Skele-Claus off the cross and laid him on the courthouse's lawn. "You don't think this is offensive?" she asked.

The display was put there by Jeff Heflin. He applied for approval with the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors to put up his anti-Christmas Season display.

"It depicts how society's materialistic obsessions and addictions are killing the season's peace, love, joy and kindness," Heflin said.

How about we strive for separation of stupidity and state?

"How about we strive for separation of stupidity and state?"

Modern science has yet to discover a way to separate the two.

Need to sue - on the basis of separation of church and state - religious symbols are not allowed afterall. If they're going to ban religious symbols, then they can't only ban positive symbols - have to ban the negative ones too.
