Religious displays at the Florida Capitol this this month are being touted as expressions of the religious freedom guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution. But the displays are inviting debate over how separate is separate enough when it comes to church and state.
The Florida Nativity Scene Committee’s Pam Olsen led the group’s Christmas celebration during the first week of December.
She said, “We get to celebrate the birthday of Jesus Christ, the babe in the manger, and that’s what it’s all about today.”
Local school children sang several Christmas carols.
