Faith Organization Battles ‘War on Christmas’ with Live Nativity Scene and Christmas Carols in Times Square

nativity project Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states, “We are seeing a growing hostility toward expressions of faith in the public square.  Nowhere is this seen more than during the Christmas season where over the past several years Nativity Scenes, Christmas parades, the singing of Christmas Carols have been removed from the public arena.
“‘The Nativity Project’ is a positive and creative step forward in which citizens and groups can actively go into the public square and display Nativity Scenes nationwide during the Christmas season.  This is what we are doing in Times Square this Saturday.
“It is imperative that we remind all Americans that the First Amendment promises freedom ‘of’ religion not freedom ‘from’ religion.  Public religious freedom and speech must be protected and promoted. 
“It is also critical during these challenging and difficult economic times to be reminded that the birth of the Christ-child promises ‘peace and goodwill’ to all who seek Him.”
For more information or interviews call:
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney at 540.538.4741
Kaitlin Clare at 540.538.4822
Rev. Mahoney will also be available at the Nativity Display in Times Square on Saturday, December 6.
