Surprise! Christians are once again being forced to take their faith behind closed doors rather than celebrate it openly in order to make sure one atheist isn’t “offended”. Makes a lot of sense, right? There are lots of accusations this time of year that the faithful are trying to force their views down the throats of others – but why is it that Christians and others are supposed to hide their faith when everyone gets to reap the benefits of the holiday season (vacations, presents, general cheer and pretty lights)?

Christian pastors in Henderson County, Texas, are fighting back against atheists who are demanding that a nativity scene located on a courthouse lawn be taken down.
The group behind the complains, the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, frequently targets faith and religion projects that are placed on public lands. The group sent a letter to the county that explains how a local resident, who wishes to remain nameless, is offended by the scene.
But rather than bow down to the atheists’ demands, the pastors are planning to defend their display. “It’s time that Americans stand up and take America back for the faith that we were founded upon,” said Nathan Lorick, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Malakoff, Texas. “We’re going to stand up and fight for this.”
