Upon advice from the Liberty Counsel, Green Bay's idiot-in-chief Jim Schmitt instructed city workers today to add some secular elements to City Council President Chad Fredette's plastic-and-holiday-lights homage to the Savior. Yeah, that six-legged wire camel doesn't trivialize the religious nature of the holiday at all.
Wait, it's a reindeer? No way. Reindeer don't have humps.
Again, what Schmitt cannot apparently get through his skull is that every reindeer, every Santa, every tree he adds up there only further serves to trivialize the importance of the very holiday he professes to be defending.
Please, Jim, stop trivializing the birth of Jesus. Just stop already, before your antics escalate into a national embarrassment. Unless the city is going to accept pro bono services from a bunch of right-wing nuts like LC, you're already going to be dropping city tax dollars on a lawsuit from the Freedom From Religion Foundation. The fact that you've allowed exactly ONE private citizen (who happens to be City Council President) to have a display atop City Hall while simultaneously denying every other private citizen the right to have a display might be, shall we say, a wee bit problematic in your legal defense.
It would be one thing if this Nativity scene was part of a comprehensive holiday display somewhere else on City Hall grounds. But you let a private citizen put it up. And then you denied other citizens the same opportunity. That Fredette has subsequently "donated" the display to the city doesn't change the original circumstance at all. And you think having city workers put a reindeer up there is going to shield you in court?
If you are taking someone else's advice on this, lawyer or otherwise, you should probably fire them. They're doing a terrible job. For that matter, so are you, Jim. And you'll probably be getting a lump of coal from Santa, provided he can deliver it to you house. I mean, at this rate, you'll probably have him blown up and tied down on top of City Hall like a Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon in an attempt to further justify this Jesus-based lawn art over your entrance.
