The Catholic League’s Bill Donohue commented on the rumor that the Obamas intended NOT to put the traditional manger scene in theWhite House. Here's what he has to say:
“It should come as no big surprise that [President Obama] and his wife would like to neuter Christmas in the White House,” said Donohue. “That’s their natural step — to ban the public display of Christian symbols. Have any doubts? Last April, Georgetown University was ordered to put a drape over the name of Jesus as a condition of the president speaking there.
“If the Obamas want to deprive their children of celebrating Christmas, that is their business. It is the business of the public to hold them accountable for the way they celebrate Christmas in the White House. We know one thing for sure: No other administration ever entertained internal discussions on whether to display a Nativity scene in the White House.”
