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.”
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.”
