Y'know, these people need to READ the Constitution

It is "Freedom of", not "freedom FROM".

{It actually says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"}

which clashes with:

A federal judge has banished the Baby Jesus and the Three Wise Men from an Indiana high school’s Christmas musical.
“The living nativity scene impermissibly conveys an endorsement of religion and thus runs afoul of the Establishment Clause,”

Now, I am, actually totally against a State Approved Religion.

But I fail to see how the above equals a SAR.

If the kids wish to do their live Nativity scene, then isn't that "the free exercise thereof"? I would have an objection if the children of, say, a Muslim family were required to participate in any portion of the Christmas pageant  Holiday presentation....But if the children wish to do so, and their parents have no objection, then......what, exactly, is the deal? (We all know it is a Christmas pageant, even if they have renamed it)

Perhaps a statement before the pageant declaring that this is a volunteer presentation and In No Way endorses this religion as a State Approved religion?

That 'sounds' like free exercise of... but I'm just a dumb old country boy...
