DOVER, Del. (AP) — A Catholic fraternal organization is suing a Delaware beach resort over its decision to end a decadeslong practice of allowing a Christmas Nativity scene on public property.
The Knights of Columbus says the 2018 decision by Rehoboth Beach officials violates constitutional guarantees of free speech and free exercise of religion. The lawsuit says officials have banned the Nativity scene while allowing secular displays on public property. The city solicitor says he's disappointed that the group filed a lawsuit. He says officials have tried to come up with an acceptable compromise.
