El­derly man wants Na­tiv­ity scene back

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - Religion -

WAR­REN, MICH. (AP) — A man who for 63 years has placed a Na­tiv­ity scene on a sub­ur­ban me­dian has filed a fed­eral law­suit against a com­mis­sion that put a halt to the tra­di­tion.

John Satawa says in a fil­ing in U.S. District Court in Detroit that the Ma­comb County Road Com­mis­sion vi­o­lated his con­sti­tu­tional rights by deny­ing him a per­mit for the Na­tiv­ity scene in War­ren be­cause it “dis­plays a re­li­gious mes­sage.”
