David French: Christmas skirmishes and the war for American history

ADF Attorney David French writing at The Washington Post / On Faith: “For decades, the secular left has argued that religious offensiveness is a very big deal . . . Let’s try to sort this out. So it is a big deal when a nativity scene is put on public land but no big deal at all if it’s removed? You can be upset when memorial crosses are put up, but not when they’re taken down? . . . In reality, the presence or absence of religious symbols is important. The Christmas skirmish is just one (easily lampooned) part of a larger battle over our nation’s history.”
