’Tis the season. Almost every year there’s a kerfluffle somewhere about a civic display. This year, we have Boston’s holiday tree, which offends some (including the supplier) in an attempt not to offend others.
Samuel Alito had a few things to say about such matters here (on Jersey City’s "’holiday’ displays," which included a Christmas tree, a creche, a menorah, some Kwanzaa ornaments, and some secular figures) and here (on a child’s Thanksgiving poster in a public school).
Hat tip: the invaluable Religion Clause.
