Bethel First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker On Nativity/Atheist Issue in Town
I wrote a story about this issue about two weeks ago. Basically, what was happening at that time is that a local atheist is saying that if you allow a nativity scene, you have to allow our sign in PT Barnum Square.
I have strong feeling about this which I think are no secret. I believe I made them clear with my last line in that blog, but I'm not the one who needs to make a determination on these things.
We thought we would go straight to the top and bring in Bethel's First Selectman, Matt Knickerbocker, to talk about it. Here's what he had to say:
So there you have it. For now, the issue seems settled, but it also sounds a lot like there is work to be done going forward. Once you get a committee going, you are going to start a subcommittee, and away we go — NEVER ENDING MEETINGS and public hearings.
Good luck, Bethel. Wish you the best. Oh, and Merry Christmas to all.
