Nativity Returns To Statehouse, But May Spark Showdown In Chicago Suburbs


Dedication ceremonies are planned for Tuesday for a Nativity scene at the State Capitol building.  This is the fifth straight year for the Nativity scene at the Statehouse. 

 

Supporters say the privately-funded display is both a seasonal celebration, and a demonstration of the right of religious people to express their beliefs in the public square. 

 

But the group that puts up the Statehouse scene each year is challenging a decision by the Arlington Heights Park District, rejecting a request to erect a similar display there. 

 

The group notes that Arlington Heights allows secular holiday decorations in the park, including a snowman and a Christmas tree with presents underneath… and says the religious display should be accommodated, too.
