Mayor Nutter Brings Christmas Back to Philly

Love in 2010

It seems Mayor Nutter has decided to put Christmas back in the Village.

Mayor Nutter, after sustaining two days of controversy, wants “Christmas” back up on the signs at the entrance to the German Christmas Village at City Hall.

On Monday, Philly’s managing director, Richard Negrin, relayed to Thomas Bauer of the German American Marketing, Inc. complaints the city had received over the ‘Christmas Village’ sign. This prompted workers to remove the word ‘Christmas’ from the entrance sign sparking a nationwide furor.  I suspect a number of those complaints originated from Margaret Downey’s ‘Free Thought’ Society as Christmas is their least favorite word.

Speaking of Christmas and victory, last week the ‘Free Thought’ Society was dealt a crushing blow in West Chester, Pa. as County Commissioners voted to put the decision of which winter holiday displays to place outside the historic courthouse in the hands of the county. This is a change in policy that allowed organizations such as the Pennsylvania Pastors Network, Chabad of Chester County, Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce and the “Free Thought” Society to place holiday displays outside the courthouse.

It looks as though there will be no ‘Tree of Knowledge’ this year in West Chester,  Margret Downey of the ‘Free Thought” society responds with a lawsuit threat.

    Margret Downey, atheists’ have their own holiday.

    April 1.

    Psalm 14
    1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

    The talk of the Christmas sign was tinged with anger and outrage at my shop. The talk was of this very tiny number and very vocal busybodies trying to dictate to the rest of us how we should celebrate the Christmas holiday.

    The free thought society is neither. I saw their display of non sense last year and if they want to celbrate some kind of holiday they are free to but they are not free to dictate how the rest of us celebrate ours.

    Trevor: You got that right!

    Jennifer: Good to see that your are still checking in. I’d urge you to watch the Chester County Commissioner’s meeting where they voted on the new regulations. Downey and her co-hort really did a great job illuminating the hatred that spurs their brand of atheism.

    As you know, all true atheists don’t need a tree of knowledge – they have Festivus!
