GLENN: A small Pennsylvania town has removed a nativity scene from its
borough building after a resident complained that the scene is offensive to
non-Christians. How many times have you little baby Jesus and thought to
yourself (screaming)? All the time.
PAT: Every time it scares me. It offends me.
GLENN: Little babies, man.
PAT: Swallowed my tongue one time.
GLENN: Did you really?
PAT: When I was walking by a nativity scene.
GLENN: Town leaders say they don’t like to remove it, but they are legal
PAT: I would like to ask these town leaders in what way?
PAT: How does that legally obligate you to remove it?
GLENN: Because they this person I’m not going to give you the name because it’s
GLENN: Said that it was disrespectful to citizens who aren’t Christians.
GLENN: And shouldn’t be in a government building.
PAT: What’s your point?
GLENN: It’s highly disrespectful to them.
PAT: How? In what way? We’re not asking you to
GLENN: To those that are not Christians, for it to be displayed in a government
GLENN: It’s a government that’s supposed to represent all of its citizens.
PAT: It does.
GLENN: Not just the majority.
PAT: It does, just because we put out this nativity scene doesn’t mean we
represent all people.
GLENN: No. You’re wrong. It’s been in the building for 57 years. Now they’re
removing it. Hasn’t it been there long enough?
PAT: No, no. It hasn’t. I would like to know how it’s disrespectful to anybody
to put up a nativity scene.
GLENN: Well, of course, the Knights of Columbus.
GLENN: You know, religious people.
GLENN: They say we think you should show tolerance to one another. It’s
disrespectful to my rights, too, to
PAT: I think they’re saying it’s disrespectful to have it taken down.
GLENN: Yeah. That’s what
GLENN: Was it that hard to follow?
GLENN: Do you want me to do the math? I was just quoting. I’m sorry.
PAT: All right. You weren’t quoting very well, but
GLENN: I’m reading it right here. I think we have to show tolerance to another
one. It’s disrespectful to my rights, too.
PAT: You screwed it up with again.
GLENN: It’s disrespectful to my rights, too.
PAT: You got it that time. (Applause.) You got it. That was good.
GLENN: Are you clapping, Stu? You’re clapping?
PAT: He was. He did. I heard him. I heard him.
GLENN: Yeah. You you see what I got for Christmas. I’m putting the clapper on
STU: That’s a weird solution.
GLENN: Yeah. That’s right. Every time you clap, it will just shut your
microphone down. You go ahead and clap all you want.
PAT: Remember the clapper? That was a great device.
GLENN: I personally like the Christmas scene
STU: He didn’t want to talk about the clapper at all.
PAT: No. He didn’t want to.
PAT AND STU: Clap on, clap off, clap on, clap off, the clapper.
