RICHFIELD, Utah (AP) - Two Utah cities are refusing to display Nativity scenes on city property, even though they were donated by
the Eagle Scouts.
The Salina and Richfield city councils unanimously made the decision on the advice of a city attorney.
Local members of the Right to Vote Committee had petitioned the city councils to put up the displays. The committee's chairwoman says city leaders are showing a lack of Christian courage.
But Richfield Mayor Brad Ramsay says the city doesn't want to mix church and state or impose a personal expression of Christmas on anyone.
