Video: Henderson County, Texas Refuses to Remove Nativity Scene

| by Michael Allen

The Freedom From Religion Foundation in Madison, Wisconsin recently sent a letter to Henderson County in Athens, Texas deeming a nativity scene to be unconstitutional and asked that it either be removed, or a sign bearing a solstice poem, proclaiming there to be no gods or heaven, be placed nearby. 

Joe Hall, the Henderson County, Texas Commissioner told News 8 (video below): “I’m a country boy. You come to my house looking for a fight, you’re gonna get one. And that’s from the bottom of my heart.”

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

When asked by News 8 if the county would remove the display, Hall answered;  “We’ll remove it when hell freezes over. I ain’t gonna back down. I haven’t, and I won’t.”
