The Tree From Hell


Evidently, the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay is displaying a satanic tree as part of its "Festival of Trees" exhibit sponsored by Amerhart company in Green Bay.

While we staunchly defend any private organization's First Amendment free speech right, given that the National Railroad Museum is funded in part by state tax dollars, how is this exhibit not a violation of Constitutional prohibitions on public religious displays? Moreover, how is it conceivable that the Museum's directors and sponsors consider this to be an appropriate exhibit in a railroad museum visited by families during the Christmas holiday season?

We are reaching out to the Museum's board of directors, Amerhart, and our state and local representatives to get clarification on this matter, and we encourage our members to do the same.
