"There's a big empty spot on the lawn for the atheists"

Larimer County, Colorado, Sheriff Jim Alderhen figured out a way to continue to celebrate Christmas and not hurt anyone's feelings.

For years, the office has hosted a Christmas party at the Sheriff's office. At the party, a nativity scene, a menorah, and a Christmas tree are lit up.

After fielding complaints from the Colorado Coalition of Reason, the Sheriff invited them to the party -- and even offered them a spot for their display.

He left a "big empty spot on the lawn for the atheists."

Good for the Sheriff. That's all we are asking...is for equal footing with secularism.
