Christmastime in America. The image evokes the warm glow of candle-lit windows, snow-laden trees, stockings and candy canes, twinkling lights, and soft angelic music. But if Christmas is truly "the most wonderful time of the year," then why does a manger scene at city hall stir up such tremendous conflict? And why does a third grader's wish to give out red and green pencils with a Christian message create such a firestorm between parents and public school administrators?
The reason is simple: Jesus Christ, the most controversial person in history.
Activists and attorneys argue that any inclusion of Jesus Christ in the public square violates the so-called "Separation of Church and State" doctrine. Nowhere is this debate more clearly visible than during the holidays. But is this really true? Does the Constitution demand a government blackout of all things religious in our public institutions during this time of year?
