"Henderson County Commissioner Joe Hall has vowed to protect a nativity scene on the lawn of the courthouse in downtown Athens, Texas. 'I’m an old country boy, you come to my house looking for a fight, you’re going to get one,' he told WFAA. 'That’s from the bottom of my heart.' The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sent a letter to Henderson county officials claiming that the display violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, which prohibits the government from favoring one religion over another."
