Last December, school administrators in Greene County faced controversy over a Nativity Scene one employee put on a bulletin board. We wrote about that story rather extensively here.

It seems the bulletin board is still stirring controversy. Americans United for Separation of Church and State has written letters to the school, and is threatening further legal action if the school does not bar the bulletin board display in the future.

Here’s the bottom line: We stand with the school’s decision to keep the Nativity Scene bulletin board display. In our opinion, those bulletin boards constitute a limited public forum on which school officials can place approved material. School administrators approved the Nativity display. It would be an infringement of their freedom of speech for the courts to say the school doesn’t have the right to let teachers put up Christmas decorations like the Nativity–especially given the fact that Christmas is a federal holiday observed at every level of our government.
