Another display for holiday at courthouse?
Group promotes separation of church and state
DIXON – The Nativity scene on the courthouse lawn may have some company next December.
The Madison, Wis.-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, which promotes the separation of church and state, plans to put up a winter solstice display next year on the courthouse lawn.
Last month, local resident Matt Fichter objected to the Nativity scene in front of the Old Lee County Courthouse at Second Street and Galena Avenue. The display, he said, amounted to a government endorsement of religion.
