WI Freedom from Religion Foundation To Setup “Winter Solstice” Display in Response to Nativity SceneBy
Why does it not surprise me this is happening in Madison, Wisconsin?
The conservative group Wisconsin Family Action set up the manger scene on Sunday, and its president Julaine Appling said they plan to display it through the end of the month. But the move angered the Madison-based Freedom from Religion Foundation, which is now planning its own “slightly blasphemous” Capitol nativity display celebrating the winter solstice.
“It’s distressing to me that we have a manger scene on top of all of the religion at the Capitol,” Freedom from Religion co-president Annie Laurie Gaylor said. “Every day it’s religion, religion, religion.” [Wisconsin State Journal]
