CASE ENTRY

Freedom from Religion Foundation, Inc. v. Abbott

Texas governor takes a dim view of atheist group’s display in Capitol building (submitted after a traditional Nativity scene was approved) that features Founding Fathers arrayed around a manger containing the Bill of Rights. Guv: It’s “tasteless sarcasm” that mocks Christianity. Fifth Circuit: Rejecting the display likely violates the First Amendment.
