Nativity Scene Moved After Legal Threats

Posted: Updated:

    A nativity scene has always been the focal point of one community near Pittsburgh, but for the first time in decades, the scene is not in front of city hall.
    After receiving legal threats from the same atheist group connected to the Steubenville City Logo controversy, Ellwood City officials have moved the city's nativity scene to outside a former church just down the street.
    Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation claimed the nativity scene violated the separation of church and state.
    The city's mayor says the fight's not over and he thinks the scene will be back in its old home.
