Manitowoc County "wins" the case brought against it by the Freedom from Religion Foundation over a creche display on the county courthouse grounds (after revising its policy and rendering the issue moot) at summary judgment:
Thus, it seems local governmental bodies that permit Nativity displays on government property as symbols of the Christmas holiday must choose between two alternatives. They can either surround the crèche with the more anodyne symbols of the Christmas holiday having no recognizable connection to the event the day commemorates . . . or open up their public spaces to a cacophony of silliness inspired by either bad taste or a desire to drown out or counter any possible religious message. This hardly seems reasonable.
The judge also opens the opinion with a rather overt religious reference...a bible quote...which is interesting...in an Endorsement case.
