Nativity scene displayed at Texas Capitol to counter 'War on Christmas,' and no one complains



AUSTIN–A nativity scene was unveiled at the Texas Capitol building Monday by an privately sponsored group looking to combat the “War on Christmas.”

The Texas Nativity Scene Project will display the scene in the basement of the Capitol for one week.

“There’s been very much an effort to drive Christ and Christians out of Christmas,” said the project’s spokesman Trey Trainor.

Trainor said so far the group has received no pushback in response to the religious display.
