Â mother of two has taken the New York City public school system to court over its policy prohibiting nativity scenes.
When Andrea Skoros of Queens learned that display of her sons' model of the baby Jesus in a manger was not allowed at their school, she sought the help of the Thomas More Law Center. With the Center's assistance, the angry parent filed a federal lawsuit against the school system.
The city permits Menorah decorations and displays of the Islamic star and crescent in schools, but has banned Christian symbols. Skoros believes the city is intentionally discriminating against Christians.
At first the New York woman says she thought the prohibition was simply an attempt at political correctness; but after hearing some of the voices of opposition, she realized that many people were saying they were actually offended by the Christian display.
