Nativity Scenes on Display This Christmas
As part of IFA’ s events surrounding the Dobbs Supreme Court case, intercessors watched a beautiful live nativity on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court. Faith and Liberty (“America’s only Christian outreach across the street from the United States Supreme Court”) sponsored the annual event, which you can watch HERE. They hope to inspire people across the nation to exercise the established constitutional right to share a nativity event or display a nativity in public places.
The Epoch Times reports that nativity scenes are on display at 40 state capitols this Christmas. This is part of a joint effort of the American Nativity Scene and the Thomas More Society. “The 40 state capitol sites are a 25-percent increase compared to last Christmas and nearly double the number from 2018.”
“With funding from an angel donor, American Nativity Scene provides two-foot-high figures depicting baby Jesus, Mary, St. Joseph, and an angel to private groups who wish to display a Nativity scene in the public square. The local groups provide a manger and straw, then work with staff at the government venues to obtain any needed permits.
Since 2013, the group has shipped more than 400 Nativity scenes for display at capitols and other sites. If local volunteers get any resistance, the Thomas More Society steps in, going to court when necessary, to secure the constitutionally protected right to religious speech.
“The ability to do this is a good response to what has happened in society the last couple years,” O’Malley said. “It’s not going to make a huge change, but I think it will make a change.”
