Today, Wisconsin Family Action and Wisconsin Family Council kicked off the Christmas season by putting a traditional nativity display and a Merry Christmas sign in the State Capitol. This year marks the 20th year Wisconsin Family Council has had a sign in the capitol and the fifth year of the nativity display. The Madison-based Freedom from Religion Foundation has also had its Winter Solstice sign up for all 20 years and has added a blasphemous nativity display in recent years. The displays join the State Christmas tree in the rotunda and will be up all month.

“We are honored to exercise our freedom of speech and religion with these displays each year, ” says WFA president Julaine Appling, “The thousands who come to the capitol this month will see our sign and our beautiful nativity declaring the Truth that Jesus Christ really is the reason for the season. Unlike Freedom From Religion’s dark and hopeless message, our display brings light and offers hope.”

Here are a few photos from today. We had help with setting up from Erica and Gennavive Meisel of Baraboo. View the entire slide show HERE.
