An atheist activist has posted a video to YouTube after the city of Deerfield Beach, Florida displayed a nativity scene near a firehouse. In the video, Chaz Stevens threatens to sue the city as he uses vulgar terminology to describe the images of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.
According to Circa, Stevens decided to sue Deerfield Beach over the nativity scene after it denied him permission to erect a “Festivus” pole made of beer cans. The city reportedly had permitted Stevens’ Festivus display in the past, next to nativity scenes and menorahs, but this year decided that only displays reflecting the holidays could be erected.
