Group wants Detroit police to stop holding graduations in churches

The Freedom from Religion Foundation of Madison, Wisconsin, recently sent [Detroit Police Chief James] Craig a letter complaining that Police Academy graduations are held at Greater Grace Temple on Seven Mile, which it says violates the Constitution.

Despite the group’s objections, [Detroit Police Chief James] Craig said he’ll continue using churches for graduations and other events.

“We stand firm,” the chief said. “As an option, we’ll continue to use houses of worship for our graduations. That doesn’t mean we’re forcing our religious beliefs on anyone. One factor is, these churches donate the space, so there’s no cost to taxpayers.”

Freedom from religion? or just Christianity?

On December 21, 2019 – the same Freedom From Religion Foundation insisting public civic ceremonies held in churches are a violation of church/state separation penned a piece called Away With the Manger – In With the Solstice! in which they write, “For a fact, the Christians stole Christmas. We don’t mind sharing the season with them, but we don’t like their pretense that it is the birthday of Jesus. It is the Birthday of the Unconquered Sun — Dies Natalis Invicti Solis. Christmas is a relic of sun worship. For all of our major festivals, there were corresponding pagan festivals tied to natural events. We’ve been celebrating the Winter Solstice, this natural holiday, long before Christians crashed the party.”

So in other words, the Freedom From Religion Foundation doesn’t want freedom from ALL religions. Clearly they are all in favor of public spaces like civic centers, city halls, police and fire stations, public libraries, et al being decorated with lights and trimmings which they claim are the icons and relics of Sun worship.

Why do the Sun worshipers get a pass from FFRF but the SON worshipers do not? Well, you know the answer.
