Court: Discrimination against Christianity is OK
A federal appeals court panel has upheld a city policy on holiday displays for its schools that allows Santa Claus, reindeer, Christmas trees and symbols of Jewish and Islamic holidays but prohibits Nativity scenes.
"No reasonable objective observer would perceive from the totality of the circumstances in this case that the purpose of the challenged display policy was, in fact, to communicate to city schoolchildren any official endorsement of Judaism and Islam or any dismissal of Christianity," the court wrote.
No reasonable person would perceive that excluding Christian symbols while including Jewish, Islamic and secular was a discrimination against Christianity? No reasonable person could conclude anything else!
