A small Indiana town is fighting to keep displaying their annual Nativity display at the county courthouse. The Freedom From Religion Foundation says the display in Brookville is a violation of church and state and has asked that the scene be removed.
The Nativity scene is annually displayed on the Franklin County Courthouse square.
“If people don’t like the look of it I think they can look the other way, or don’t look at all,” said Brookville resident Wayne Monroe. “It’s been a tradition here for many, many years and I hope it’s for many more years. I think we deserve the right to put up what the community wants and I don’t think anybody else should tell us what to do.
“I think it’s going to take a lot more that some outfit from Wisconsin to have it removed,” he continued.
Commissioner Scot McDonough said he disagrees with the FFRF.
“They use the misconceptions about the separation of church and state to make everyone afraid of getting into the middle of a lawsuit, when the Constitution does protect you,” he told FOX & Friends.
Brookville has about 3,000 residents.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
