President-elect Donald J. Trump wishes those attending his thank you tour a Merry Christmas. The birthday of Jesus Christ is recognized throughout Western cultures and is the foundation of our Constitutional Republican form of government. In God We Trust appears on our currency and is on many public buildings.
Even in a secular France there is a movement to have a Nativity Scene in each city and town square.
However in Boca Raton, Florida there is one man, Preston Smith, who has erected a Satanic display in in the name of freedom of religion.
In a column “Man behind Satanic pentagram in Boca Raton is a middle school teacher Boca Middle School PTSA wants teacher removed” Charlie Keegan from WPTV Channel 5 reports:
The man who installed a satanic pentagram in Boca Raton is a public school teacher, the Palm Beach County superintendent of schools confirmed today.
The school district did not answer a previous attempt by NewsChannel 5 to confirm.
Parents said Preston Smith teaches language arts at Boca Raton Community Middle School. The president of the school’s parent teacher association said she doesn’t want Smith to continue teaching at the school, but added she can’t speak on behalf of all parents.
“A teacher we entrust our children with should not be putting a sign like this anywhere,” explained Kim Bremer.
Earlier this month, the city of Boca Raton gave Smith permission to install a Satanic display at Sanborn Square downtown. That is the same park where other religious organizations install a nativity scene and menorah during the holiday season.
Smith is a known activist for separating religion from government. He argued if the city allows one religious display on public property, it has to allow them all, even if they are offensive.
