Piedmont Chirstmas Parade Under Controversy

Thursday, November 27, 2014

The Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter Monday telling the City of Piedmont that its planned “Keep Christ in Christmas” parade is unconstitutional.

According to the Piedmont Journal, the theme reflects strong belief in prayers.  The city’s annual Christmas parade is set to be held at 6:00PM on Thursday, December 4-TH.  Piedmont High School’s track and field team will reportedly serve as grand marshals.  The letter concluded by asking the city to select a “more appropriate, more inclusive, and constitutional theme for the parade. The foundation also wrote to Piedmont City Schools, which promoted the religious parade on the official Piedmont High School Facebook page.
