Nutter Puts "Christmas" Back In Village After Controversy

Mayor Nutter, after sustaining two days of controversy, wants "Christmas" back up on the signs at the entrance to the German Christmas Village at City Hall. Nutter told PhillyClout he spoke with the village organizer and the sign should be back up by tomorrow.

Nutter said the decision came after "personal reflection" on the matter.

"We are an international, multi-ethnic, multi-faith city," Nutter said. "I took some time to step back from all of this to think about it in a larger context."

Nutter, who said he had nothing to do with the orignal conversations with the organizer that lead to the letters being removed, downplayed how much impact the national news coverage had on the decision. Nutter said that he felt the village was not necessarily a religious site.

This is good to see, but he should have had the balls to leave it up in the first place.

The entire concept was ridiculous regardless of how you view religion. The market is modeled on the German-style Christmas markets that pop up in December. It's like Oktoberfest. You couldn't decide to move Oktoberfest to May, forbid alcohol sales, and call it Not-Beer, Not Harvest Festival. That would be insane.

Have the balls to say it was a mistake, one of a bad choice trying to be too PC, while ignoring how inappropriate it was to begin with.


BTW, any one spot the spelling error in the article?

Give it time. Muslims will object to the sale of beer, and the celebration of a solar (and therefore Christian) calendar month.
